‘Obamacare’ Vote Disappoints Vick

State Sen. Steve Vick, R-Hayden Lake, tweets: “HB 117 Hearing, Opting out of Obamacare: I am terribly disappointed to tell you that the bill died on a voice vote in committee today. But I ask you today to remember the words of noted abolitionist Wendell Phillips, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” — Don't ever give up.”

Question: No North Idaho senators serve on the Senate State Affairs Committee, which heard this bill. How do you think the five of them would have voted, if the legislation had made it to the Senate floor.
