Ohio in Congress

Thomas Voting Reports
Here are area lawmakers’ decisions on major roll-call votes in Washington for the week ending Jan. 21.

U.S. House
Health-Care Repeal: Members passed, 245-189, a GOP repeal of the 2010 health-care law. In part, the law bars denial of coverage based on pre-existing conditions and keeps youths on their parents’ policies until age 26. A yes vote backed HR 2 on grounds the new law is an overreach that will cost jobs.

LaTourette: Yes

Fudge: No

Congressional Health: The House defeated, 185-245, a Democratic bid to link the pending repeal bill (HR 2, above) to the extensive health coverage received by members of Congress. A yes vote was to delay repeal until a majority of members have been dismissed from the taxpayer-subsidized Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.

LaTourette: No

Fudge: Yes

Health-Law Replacement: Voting 253-175, the House directed four of its committees to start drafting a health-care law to replace the one the GOP seeks to repeal. This step is needed because repeal advocates have not yet offered an alternative to the 2010 law. A yes vote was to pass H Res 9.

LaTourette: Yes

Fudge: No

Medicare Fix: Members voted, 428-1, to require the Republicans’ proposed new health law to permanently change the outdated formula for paying doctors for their treatment of Medicare patients. A yes vote was to pursue a fix expected to cost $250 billion or more over ten years. (H Res 9)

LaTourette: Yes

Fudge: Yes

Government Printing Costs: Members voted, 399-0, to end the practice of the Government Printing Office providing each House member and senator with paper copies of every bill or resolution introduced in their chamber. Nearly 14,000 bills were introduced in the last Congress. A yes vote backed HR 292.

LaTourette: Yes

Fudge: Yes

Key votes ahead
In the week of Jan. 24, the House will vote on whether to cut non-security spending in the current fiscal year, and it will take up a bill ending the system of voluntary taxpayer check-offs to fund presidential campaigns. The Senate will debate changes in filibuster rules.
