As expected, the House voted Wednesday to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Five Democrats sided with the Republicans in the 244-185 vote, which came in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling that largely upheld the two-year-old health reform law.
The bill, though, has virtually no chance of passage this year, with the Democratic-controlled Senate unlikely to consider it. President Obama has said he would veto it.
It was the 33rd vote to repeal or defund the law since Republicans took control of the House chamber last year. “We are resolved to have this law go away, and we’re going to do everything we can to stop it,” said House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio).
