Fight over Obamacare coming or not? If the fight is tomorrow,why then clench your fist today

Before the newly elected lawmakers are even sworn in, the GOP has shown signs of a future fight with the White House. Campaign promises and reality are two different things. The Tea Party candidates’ campaign slogan was the repeal of “Obamacare”. It seems to be a top priority for Republicans.

I am still very curious, based on the structure of the US Congress, how they will be able to repeal it. They do not have enough votes in the Senate to succeed  and the President has the power to veto a change. Are they saying this just for show or to distract their base? For sure, as the Sawa of Cameroon say, “If the fight is tomorrow,why then clench your fist today? ”
