House Votes Again to Repeal PPACA

Friday, May 17, 2013

On Thursday, May 16, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 45, a bill "to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and health care-related provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010," by a vote of 229-195. The vote, similar to previous repeal votes, fell largely along party lines. All Republicans voted in support of repeal with two Democrats, Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC) and Rep. Jim Matheson (D-UT), joining in support. The legislation would repeal PPACA outright. It did not offer a replacement reform.

To effectuate repeal, H.R. 45 would have to be accepted for consideration by the U.S. Senate and pass the Senate. To date, Senate Democrat Leaders have expressed no interest in considering repeal legislation.

Review the bill.

Review the vote.
