Vote Description

HR 6147 Protecting Residents from DC’s Replacement of the Obamacare Individual Mandate (Roll Call 179)



The Cruz (R-TX, ACUF Lifetime 98.3%) amendment to a multi-agency appropriations bill prohibits any money appropriated to the District of Columbia from funding the District's health care insurance individual mandate. The amendment is in response to actions taken by the District to establish its own individual mandate after the Obamacare financial penalty for lacking insurance was zeroed out under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. ACU has long opposed Obamacare and its costly provisions, such as the individual mandate, and supported this amendment. The Senate tabled (defeated) the amendment on August 1, 2018 by a vote of 54-44. (A "No" vote supported the ACU position.)
