Citizen Fact Check

on Top Healthcare Votes 2019-2020

A constituent resource for separating truth from fiction
about lawmakers' stands on the Affordable Care Act.
1. Defending Affordable Care Act in Court
(Votes Lookup at Roll Call #19)
The House on Jan. 9, 2019, voted, 235-192, to join the defense of the Affordable Care Act in the lawsuit Texas v. United States. In that case, brought by Republican governors and attorneys general in 20 states, a federal judge in Texas ruled in 2018 that the healthcare law was rendered unconstitutional when Congress, as part of the 2017 tax-cut package, repealed the law's individual-mandate tax penalty on those who choose not to obtain health insurance. A yes vote was to adopt the Democratic-sponsored resolution (H Res 6).

2. Condemning Administration Abandonment of ACA
(Votes Lookup at Roll Call #146)
Voting 240-186, the House on April 3, 2019, approved a Democratic-sponsored condemnation of the Department of Justice's refusal to defend the Affordable Care Act in the lawsuit United States v. Texas. A federal judge in Texas declared the law unconstitutional on Dec. 14, 2018, and the suit at the time of this vote was before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, where the Trump administration joined plaintiffs in calling for the entire law - including protections for persons with pre-existing conditions -- to be stuck down. A yes vote was to adopt the nonbinding resolution (H Res 271).

3. Prohibiting Sale of Diluted Policies
(Votes Lookup at Roll Call #196)
The House on May 9, 2019, voted, 230-183, to prohibit state-run health-insurance exchanges from offering diluted versions of the coverage required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The bill (HR 986) would prohibit the Trump administration from granting waivers allowing states to offer short-term policies -- called "junk insurance" by critics -- that omit or weaken ACA requirements. Backers say the waivers enable states to offer lower-priced coverage, while critics say they siphon off healthy and younger policyholders vital to the ACA risk pool. A yes vote was to send the bill to the Senate.
