Republican lawmakers launched another effort to repeal President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law Tuesday, despite having no chance of succeeding.
Tuesday's vote was an attempt to override Obama's veto last month on a bill to gut Obamacare and end federal payments to Planned Parenthood.
Even before the scheduled vote, GOP lawmakers did not appear to have the necessary two-thirds majority to override a presidential veto. Yet, to many, like Rep. Robert Pittenger, R-N.C., the vote was symbolic.
Pittenger told CBN News the vote gave conservatives an opportunity to draw a distinction between their priorities versus the priorities of the Democrats. Click here to listen to Rep. Pittenger's comments: Defund Planned Parenthood
"We want to make it very clear to the American people where we stand and where the president stands. That's why we put this on his desk," he said. "We want them to know that we are standing for righteousness. We're standing for truth. We're standing for the lives of the unborn.
"And we're standing for a budget that is one that will bring accountability to our government and that's what we're about," he added.
Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the effort would send an important signal.
"What we're proving today is if we have a Republican president next year, we will repeal Obamacare," Ryan told reporters.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright: 'Jesus was a Palestinian'
JERUSALEM, Israel -- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the former pastor of President Barack Obama and his family, told the crowd at a rally organized by Nation of Islam, led by Louis Farrakhan, that Jesus was Palestinian, the Daily Caller reported over the weekend.
"We are grateful to God to be able to be here and to speak a word on behalf of Palestinian justice," Wright said at the "Justice or Else" rally in Washington, D.C., commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.
"The original people, the Palestinians -- and please remember Jesus was a Palestinian -- the Palestinian people have had the Europeans come and take their country," he said, articulating Palestinian Liberation Theology.
Wright accused Israel, which he called an "apartheid" state, of illegally occupying "as they take the people whose countries it is and make it their[s] because their God told them that they could have somebody else's country."
Wright compared the Palestinian conflict to the struggles of African-American youth.
"The youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected," he said.
He added that this has "implications for us as we stand beside our Palestinian brothers and sisters who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 20 and 21 centuries."
The Obama family attended Wright's church for 20 years, with some referring to Rev. Wright as the president's spiritual mentor.

Why does Jordan’s Muslim King say our enemy is Radical Islam but President Obama won’t? - Joel Rosenberg
Why does Jordan’s Muslim King say our enemy is Radical Islam but President Obama won’t? Here’s my interview on Fox News.by joelcrosenberg
(Nashville, Tennessee) -- Why is that President Obama refuses to define our enemy as "Radical Islam," yet Muslim leaders like Jordan's King Abdullah II and Egypt's President el-Sisi very honestly and publicly state that this fight is, in fact, a showdown with Radical Muslims and that we all must take action to fight these jihadists theologically as well as militarily?
Consider the headlines of just the past few days:
- Obama refuses to acknowledge ‘Muslim terrorists’ at summit (New York Post)
- Why Obama won't call terror fight a war on radical Islam (CNN)
- Homeland Secretary Johnson suggests term 'violent extremism' used at behest of Muslim leaders (Fox News)
- White House Says Shooting at Kosher Market in Paris Was 'Random' (ABC News)
- State Department spokeswoman claims jobs are key to defeating ISIS (Washington Examiner)
The Commander-in-Chief's repeated refusal to explain who the enemy is constitutes a foolish and dangerous decision. We cannot defeat an enemy we cannot define.
I discussed this issue today on Fox News with anchor Shannon Bream. Here is the video. Here is the transcript.
Bream: After that brutal killing of the captured Jordanian pilot -- carefully scripted, filmed and broadcast to the world -- King Abdullah retaliated and called the battle against ISIS the "third world war." Joel Rosenberg is author of a new book, The Third Target. He says King Abdullah fully understands he that is in a winner-take-all showdown with ISIS. Joel joins us now live. Joel, good to see you today.
Rosenberg: Good to see you, as well. Thank you, Shannon.
Bream: Now, you are very familiar -- having lived and worked in that region quite a bit -- what do you make of the response we saw from the Jordanians, and where do you think we go from here? Do you think those you live and breathe and work in that region have a different understanding than we do here in the U.S.?
Rosenberg: Well, the contrast between President Obama's response to Americans being beheaded and King Abdullah's response is striking. You know, President Obama was with King Abdullah the day the video was released of the Jordanian pilot being burned alive. The King was not on the President's schedule that day he was in Washington. And the President only added him in because of that murder, and they only spent 20 minutes together. But what did the King do? He went right back. He suited up in fatigues. He started bombing ISIS, and he hanged two ISIS people that had been captured. He understands this is a war. And he understands that he is at the center of it. And it's interesting that in that 60 Minutes interview you just referenced -- when he called it a "third world war" -- he said it's a war "inside Islam." President Obama is deeply conflicted over whether this is a battle that has anything to do with Islam. But the King -- who is a descendant of Muhammad -- knows it's a battle inside Islam, and against Radical Islam.
Bream: I don't want to get too deep into the theological weeds, but you've written a number of books about this. And your book on the so-called "Twelfth Imam" is about these End Times prophecies that certain factions of Islam -- not the majority of Muslims out there -- but there are certain factions who adhere to a very radical, specific End Times theology, and that ISIS is sort of in the business of, they want to launch an Armageddon-type, end of the world situation. They think it's what they need in prophecy to bring about their end goals. Do you think that we get that? Do you think that our administration gets that?
Rosenberg: No, and that's because the President is saying from the top and throughout the administration that this isn't an Islamic problem. You're right that the vast majority of Muslims don't, you know -- this is not them -- they're not cutting off people's heads and they never will. But the Radicals are being driven by their interpretation of Islam. And it's important -- this is what motivates them. This is why it's not a jobs issue. It's not a poverty issue. It's a Radical Islamic theology issue, and an eschatology issue. They do want to set up a caliphate -- an Islamic kingdom -- which is really an End Times theology in their view. They believe it will hasten the End of Days. My new novel, The Third Target, is really about ISIS being a threat to Israel, the United States, and Jordan. What's interesting is that it's been out five weeks now on the best-seller lists, but it really takes us into this threat that is actually not fiction right now. This is very real.
Bream: Yes. I was one eschatology class away from a theology minor in college, but I find that there's so much that I'm learning by reading about what these specific factions believe. And for those who want to get some education on this, your books are a great way of doing that -- some fiction, some non-fiction -- but a great way of getting a better understanding of why some decisions are made, and who the players are and what their interests are in these games that are -- not games, I mean the end game of what they hoped to bring about.
Rosenberg: Right, right.
Bream: I would recommend those [books] as a very entertaining but very educational way to get up-to-speed on some of these issues. Joel, always good to see you. Thank you so much. Come back soon.
Rosenberg: Thank you. I appreciate it.
