Congressman Scott Tipton voted last week with his colleagues to pass legislation to repeal the key provisions of Obamacare, effectively dismantling the law. The Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, which uses a fast-track reconciliation process to force the Senate to vote on the bill would repeal Obamacare’s individual and employer mandates, the 40 percent excise tax on high cost health plans (known as the Cadillac Tax), the medical device tax, the Prevention and Public Health Fund (Obamacare slush fund), and the auto-enrollment mandate for employers. The bill also defunds Planned Parenthood for a year and directs the funding to qualified community health centers that provide healthcare for women and children. The House has voted four times in the last two years to fully repeal Obamacare. Because of those efforts, the President has signed into law over ten pieces of legislation to defund or repeal portions of the law, and the Administration has issued over 30 delays for the implementation of certain aspects and deadlines contained within the law.
