Health Care Reconciliation. HR 4872 (Roll Call 194)
After passing the health care
overhaul bill in 2009, the House used the reconciliation process to get a bill through the
Senate making some “fixes” to the Health Care Act, including tax increases and allowing
federal funding of abortions. The bill also included a government takeover of the student
loan program. ACU opposes this improper use of reconciliation and the substance of this
effort, but the House did accept the Senate version of the reconciliation bill March 25,
2010 by a vote of 220-207.
