All but three of the Republicans in the Senate have agreed to cosponsor Senator Jim DeMint’s (R-SC) bill to repeal the sweeping health care reform bill signed into law last March, according to DeMint’s office.

The three Republicans who have not signed on are Sens. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.), Thad Cochran (Miss.) and Chuck Grassley (Iowa).
