Letter to the Editor: Definition of insanity

The July 15 Tulsa World lead story was the U.S. House voting for the 33rd time in 18 months to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Since the House majority is Republican, this vote passed. Now it is off to the Senate, again, to be voted down since the majority of the Senate is Democrat. If for some reason the Senate voted to repeal, then President Obama would use his veto power.
In essence, the outcome of this voting process is known from the very beginning, yet the Republicans continue this charade. Thirty-three times they have done this.
Have the Republicans nothing better to do with their taxpayer-funded time but play partisan politics? How about working on jobs or the economy? Are those issues not exciting enough, or maybe they do not get people sufficiently riled up about our president? They know that in the long run they will lose on this action, yet they continue to perpetrate it over and over, 33 times.
Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity was "to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results." What does this say about the Republican legislators?
