WASHINGTON Jan 13 A majority of the U.S. House
of Representatives on Friday voted to advance legislation
instructing committees to write legislation repealing President
Barack Obama's landmark healthcare law.
The procedural vote of 235 to 188 clears the way for a vote
later on Friday to pass the measure to begin work on repealing
Obamacare that already has been approved by the Senate. It
strictly followed party lines, indicating solidarity among House
Republicans on the issue.
