FILE - In this Sept. 9, 2009, file photo, Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., center, listens during President Barack Obama's speech on health care to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington. It took former President Barack Obama and his Democrats more than a year to pass the Affordable Care Act, a slow and painstaking process that allowed plenty of time for a fierce backlash to ignite, undermining the law from the very start. Some congressional Republicans are expressing some amazement at finding themselves, eight years later, undoing the law Democrats forged through those many months of turmoil and debate. “I’m pleasantly surprised,” said Wilson, who gained notoriety for yelling “You lie!” at Obama during the health care speech in 2009.
