Reconciliation bill to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal Obamacare provisions

House Roll Call No. 6
114th Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 240-181 (see complete tally)
On January 6, 2016, the House of Representatives approved the final version of the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act (H.R. 3762), or "budget reconciliation bill."  The House had initially approved this bill on October 23, 2015, but the Senate subsequently added provisions, making it necessary for the House to vote again on the legislation.  In its final amended form, this bill would have repealed (in two years) numerous provisions of Obamacare, including the program that provides tax subsidies to about 1,000 health plans that cover elective abortion.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) of the federal funding that goes to Planned Parenthood.  National Right to Life strongly supported passage of the bill, which passed by a vote of 240 to 181.  The bill was supported (pro-life vote) by 239 Republicans and one Democrat.  It was opposed (pro-abortion vote) by three Republicans and 178 Democrats (pro-abortion).  The bill was then sent to President Obama, who vetoed it (see below). Roll call no. 6, January 6, 2016.
