S.Amdt. 271 (Paul) to H.R. 1628: Of a perfecting nature.

Jul 26, 2017 at 3:38 p.m. ET. On the Amendment in the Senate.

This was a vote to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without replacement. The Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act would have replaced the American Health Care Act with almost identical text to a 2015 bill to repeal the ACA, which was vetoed by then-President Barack Obama. See our summary of the 2015 bill for details.

The Congressional Budget Office provided a cost estimate of the amendment earlier this month on July 19. They predicted it would “reduce federal deficits by $473 billion over the coming decade and increase the number of people who are uninsured by 32 million in 2026 relative to current law.”

This vote was related to amendment S.Amdt. 271 (115th) (Rand Paul) to H.R. 1628 (115th). The title of the amendment is S.Amdt. 271 (Paul) to H.R. 1628: Of a perfecting nature..
