(Worthy News) - The House voted Wednesday to repeal key provisions of Obamacare and strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood, sending the bill to the White House and kicking off the 2016 election season with a symbolic action intended to highlight ideological differences between Republicans and Democrats.
The House voted 240-181 to approve the legislation, which is sure to be vetoed by President Obama.
The Senate passed the legislation last month, but neither chamber has enough votes to override a veto. It takes two-thirds of the House and Senate to override a veto, and Democrats have enough votes to block the legislation. [ Source ]
