The House of Representatives voted today to repeal the entire Affordable Care Act, 229-195. This was the third vote for full repeal, and the 37th overall vote the House has taken to disrupt, dismantle, defund or repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn.) called the vote shortly before 6:30 p.m.
Two Blue Dog Democrats, Reps. Mike McIntyre (D-N.C.) and Jim Matheson (D-Utah), voted along with 227 House Republicans in support of the bill.
No Republicans opposed repeal, although five GOPers missed the vote.
In a statement following the vote, House Speaker John Boehner said the vote was “all about jobs.”
