U.S. House votes to repeal health care reform law

Congress, in its first major accomplishment, voted to repeal the health care reform law (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). H.R. 2 passed on January 19 with at 245 to 189 vote. The health care law includes multiple provisions that allow tax-funding of abortions through insurance and provisions that could allow government rationing of medical treatments.

The vote represented the will of the American people to reevaluate health care reform. Abortion is not health care. National Right to Life Committee and Right to Life of Michigan supported the passage of H.R. 2.
