On July 11th, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The vote, which will undoubtedly fail in the U.S. Senate, is seen as
a symbolic effort on the part of the Republican Party to say, “The Supreme Court may have upheld it, but it’s still a bad law.”
The vote largely followed party lines, with 244 members voting for the repeal, and 185 members voting against the repeal. All Republicans voted in favor of repeal, joined by five Democrats.
