Vetoed reconciliation bill to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare provisions

House Roll Call No. 53
114th Congress, 2nd Session

Failed: 241-186 (see complete tally)
On February 2, 2016, the House of Representatives voted on whether to override President Obama's veto of the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act (H.R. 3762), the "pro-life budget reconciliation bill."  The bill would have repealed (in two years) numerous provisions of Obamacare, including the program that provides tax subsidies to about 1,000 health plans that cover elective abortion.  In addition, the bill would have blocked most (about $400 million) federal funding to Planned Parenthood for one year.  National Right to Life strongly supported passage of the bill.  The tally was 241 votes in favor of overriding the veto, and 186 opposed, which was 44 votes short of the two-thirds margin required to override.  Therefore, the bill died.  On this roll call, 240 Republicans voted to override, while three voted to sustain the veto (Reps. Hanna and Katko of New York, and Rep. Dold of Illinois).  One Democrat (Rep. Peterson of Minnesota) voted to override, and 183 Democrats voted to sustain.  Roll call no. 53, February 2, 2016.
