The U.S. House voted Friday to prevent the IRS from enforcing any aspect of ObamaCare, 232-185.
Every Republican representative supported the bill, along with four Democrats.
The vote was the 40th time the House has tried to fully or partially repeal Obama’s health care law.
A few Democrats said gutting enforcement of the bill would remove health coverage that thousands of people now have under the law. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-N.J.) said the law would help families without coverage whose children are diagnosed with cancer.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) angrily rejected those statements as “scare tactics” that he said “do not have a place in legitimate debate on this floor.”
The bill is not expected to advance in the Senate.
