Vote Description

HR 1628 Obamacare Repeal Bill of 2015 (Roll Call 169)

This amendment to the House-passed bill to repeal and replace Obamacare contains the bill passed by Congress but vetoed by President Obama in 2015. It repeals major portions of Obamacare, including penalties for not buying government-approved health insurance, Medicaid expansion to able-bodied childless adults, and subsidies to buy insurance through government controlled exchangesThe bill also prevents Planned Parenthood from receiving much of its federal funding for one yearACU supports the repeal of Obamacare, which has caused millions of Americans to lose their insurance plan and their doctor while dramatically increasing premiums and deductibles and supported this amendment as the most that can be accomplished under Senate rulesThe Senate defeated the amendment on July 26, 2017 by a vote of 45-55This amendment is double-weighted due to the fact six Senators changed their vote from ”yes” to ”no” because, unlike the vote in 2015, this vote would have been signed into law.
