REPORT: House notches rare bipartisan vote to repeal part of Obamacare


Republicans and Democrats came together Wednesday to perform an act rarely seen on Capitol Hill: voting to repeal part of Obamacare.

The laws, the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act, passed easily via a procedural process meant to expedite uncontroversial laws. The bill gutted the Obamacare “Cadillac Tax,” which is a 40% excise tax on health insurance coverage deemed overly generous.

The article goes on to state the following:

The “Cadillac Tax” was once seen as integral to funding the healthcare law but is now widely viewed by lawmakers as a penalty on the middle class.

Craig Caplan with C-Span tweeted: 419-6: “House votes to repeal ‘Cadillac’ tax, the 2010 federal heath care law’s excise tax on high-cost employer-sponsored health insurance plans. Health care tax is currently delayed from taking effect until 2022. 3 Democrats, 2 Republicans and Amash-I voted No.”
