Senate Passes Budget Reconciliation Legislation Repealing Affordable Care Act Provisions
President Obama Pledges to Veto Bill that Would Repeal Individual and Employer Mandates, Phase Out Medicaid Expansion and Exchange Subsidies

On December 3, 2015, the United States Senate passed legislation that would repeal certain provisions of the Affordable Care Act – including the individual and employer mandates and the Cadillac Tax – as well as phase out the Medicaid expansion and subsidies for individuals to purchase coverage through insurance exchanges. While the House of Representatives has voted repeatedly to repeal the ACA, this is the first time the Senate has done so. The vote was largely symbolic, as President Barack Obama has vowed to veto the legislation.

The bill passed by a vote of 52 – 47 under the budget reconciliation process requiring only 51 votes for passage. No Democrat supported the legislation, and two Republicans – Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) and Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL) – opposed the bill after a failed attempt to strike language from the measure that would prevent funding for Planned Parenthood.

Kelly explained that NAHC has asked other presidential candidates to discuss how they would support caregivers and the role of home care and hospice in Medicare and Medicaid. “We feel this is vital, important discussion with any candidate,” Kelly said.
