Block funding for Obama health care law

House Roll Call No. 270
112nd Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 240-185 (see complete tally)
H. Con. Res. 35 was a measure to block funding for implementation of President Obama's 2010 health care law (the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" or PPACA) for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2011.  As enacted, the PPACA contains multiple provisions that will, if fully implemented, result in government-imposed rationing of lifesaving medical care, which are documented here.  In addition, the PPACA also 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.  NRLC strongly supported H. Con. Res. 35, which passed the House on April 14, 2011, by a vote of 240 to 185.  (House roll call no. 270.) The bill was supported by 237 Republicans and three Democrats.  All 185 opponents were Democrats.  The bill was then sent to the Senate, which defeated it later on the same day.
