Repeal of Obamacare health care law

05/16/2013
House Roll Call No. 154
113rd Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 229-195 (see complete tally)
H.R. 45, introduced by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Mn.), would repeal Public Law 111-148, the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” (PPACA), enacted in March 2010 -- more widely known as "Obamacare."  National Right to Life Committee strongly supports repeal of the PPACA for these reasons:  As enacted, the PPACA contains multiple provisions authorizing federal subsidies for abortion, and additional provisions on which future abortion-expanding regulatory mandates may be based.  The abortion-subsidizing and abortion-expanding provisions of the law are thoroughly documented in materials posted on the NRLC website here and here.  In addition, the PPACA contains multiple provisions that will, if fully implemented, result in government-imposed rationing of lifesaving medical care.  Detailed information on the components that will result in rationing is available here. The House of Representatives passed H.R. 45 by a vote of 229 to 195.  The repeal bill was supported by 227 Republicans and two Democrats.  The repeal was opposed by 195 Democrats; no Republican voted against repeal.  House roll call No. 154, May 16, 2013.
