Attack on Planned Parenthood: Veto Override (2/2/16)


To provide for reconciliation on the budget for fiscal year 2016, H.R.3762. Veto override. Vote to override President Obama’s January 8 veto of a bill that would disqualify Planned Parenthood from participating in federal health-care programs for one year. (Some anti-choice lawmakers cast what appear to be pro-choice votes; most observers recognize that those votes were cast for reasons unrelated to reproductive health.) A two-thirds majority of those present and voting (285 votes needed to sustain the president’s veto in this case) of both houses is required to override a veto. Failed 241-186. A pro-choice vote (✓) was a vote to sustain the veto (2/2/16).
