Members of the U.S. House today voted 240-189 to pass H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015 measure.
Provisions in the measure would repeal some well-known sections of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA), including the individual coverage ownership mandate, the employer coverage and coverage reporting mandates, the excise tax on high-cost “Cadillac plans,” and the medical device tax, according to the bill text.
The measure would also take funding away from Planned Parenthood.
Only one of the 183 Democrats who voted, Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., voted for the measure.
Republicans voted 239-7 in favor of the measure.
Heritage for America, a group that opposes PPACA, argued earlier this week that Republicans in the House should oppose H.R. 3762 because the measure is not a full PPACA repeal measure. Passing and implementing the measure as-is would leave many PPACA rules and programs, including the PPACA exchange system, in place, the group said.
