Washington (NBC) -- The House is voting Wednesday to repeal President Obama's health care law.

"We are standing here for the American people against the largest tax increase in the history of the United States and we will not stop until we are ultimately successful," said Dan Lungren, (R) California.

Democrats point out this is the 31st House vote on Obamacare. "One definition of insanity is doing same thing over and over again and expecting a different result," said Rep. Jim McDermott, (D) Washington.

The next big fight - who gets an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts. "Give Mitt Romney another tax break - it will cost about a trillion dollars and we cant afford it ..." said President Barack Obama.

"And the idea, the very IDEA of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs is the sort of thing thing only an extreme liberal can come up with," said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

With Washington hopelessly gridlocked, a visitor has an idea on how to make Congress work. "Turn out the air conditioning and you don't come out until you solve it," said Michele Garber from Tallahassee, Florida.
