U.S. House of Representatives Votes Again to Repeal the Affordable Care Act

Dana Halvorson 

According to a February 3, 2015, The Hill article by Cristina Marcos and Sarah Ferris, the GOP House voted again yesterday to completely repeal the Affordable Care Act, but this time with instructions for several committees to replace the health care law with new policies. The vote of 239-186 fell largely along party lines, with every Democrat in the chamber opposing the measure. Three Republicans, Representatives Robert Dold (IL), John Katko (NY) and Bruce Poliquin (ME), joined Democrats in voting against repeal. The vote was nearly the 60th in the last four years in the House chamber to undermine or repeal the law. President Obama has made it clear he would veto a full-repeal bill.
