Should the GOP try and repeal Obamacare, knowing that the president is just going to veto it anyway? Or should they focus on smaller battles they can actually win?
Prominent Republicans are bickering over whether the new Republican majority in the Senate should attempt to pass a full repeal of Obamacare, despite the threat of an inevitable presidential veto.
