Blunt supports effort to repeal health care law

JEFFERSON CITY — Republican Missouri Congressman Roy Blunt is backing an effort to repeal the federal health care-overhaul law.

Blunt on Thursday convened a forum of a Republican health care working group to highlight concerns about the cost of the federal health care law. He also is co-sponsoring a bill to repeal the law and replace it with what he describes as "commonsense solutions."

Blunt is the leading Republican candidate this year in the race to replace Missouri's longtime Republican senator, Kit Bond.

Democratic Secretary of State Robin Carnahan is the leading Democrat in that race. Carnahan supports the new health care law, which she has said contains some "important commonsense protections."
