In November 2010, the Republicans gained 63 seats and retook control of the House of Representatives. Public opposition to ObamaCare (signed into law in March 2010 after receiving not a single GOP vote upon passage by Congress) played a critical role in the sweeping Republican victory.
Had ObamaCare not become law, perhaps the Democrats would still control the House. If that were the case, then there is no way the House would have investigated Benghazi, especially with Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, as Speaker. With the Democrats still controlling the Senate, the Obama White House would have totally escaped congressional scrutiny for its mishandling of and lies about Benghazi.
But, ironically, thanks to ObamaCare, a select committee with a Republican chairperson — Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. — is now on the job.
