House fails to override Obama veto, setting the stage for fall elections
At the top, every voter knows there are 186 members of the House who, rain or shine, scandal or no scandal, will vote to keep hundreds of millions of dollars of federal funds going to Planned Parenthood and protect many parts of Obamacare, including the program that provides tax-based subsidies for about 1,000 health plans that cover elective abortions.
The vote also reminded us of what happens when the occupant of the White House walks arm-in-arm with the abortion industry.
Tuesday tally was 241-186, a vote that came down almost entirely along party lines. All but three Republicans– John Katko and Richard Hanna of New York, and Bob Dold of Illinois–voted to override Obama’s veto of “The Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act.”
