The U.S. House of Representatives voted 239-186 to pass H.R. 596, U.S. Rep. Steve King’s full repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare. The bill has previously passed the Republican-controlled House, but this will be first time it has been presented to a Republican-controlled Senate.
King (R-IA) spoke about the importance of the bill following the vote. His speech may be seen by clicking here.
“ObamaCare passed by hook, by crook, and by legislative shenanigan,” he said. “History has shown that. And the litigation that has emerged, and the litigation yet to emerge, will shape this to some degree, but this Congress needs to resolve this.”
