(Newser) – Democrats wasted no time in celebrating the Supreme Court's ObamaCare ruling ("it's constitutional. Bitches" tweeted the DNC's executive director); Republicans wasted no time in readying the counterattack. Eric Cantor announced that the House will vote (again) to repeal the law after the July Fourth recess, on July 11, reports Politico. The vote is likely to be a symbolic one, as Democrats control the Senate. (Harry Reid, for his part, recommended Republicans stop fighting "yesterday’s battles.") But the GOP is also taking its crusade to Twitter, pushing the hashtag #FullRepeal.

A visit to the RNC's website ( now redirects you to www.peoplevobamacare, which assembles the latest tweets using the #FullRepeal hashtag. They're coming fast and furious from average Joes and the likes of John Boehner, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, and Romney's press secretary, who tweeted that the candidate has raked in $200,000 since the decision was announced. Politico reported earlier this week that Team Romney, the RNC, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, and others have held a number of conference calls in which they defined their #FullRepeal strategy should the law be upheld.
