On Tuesday, Feb. 2, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on a measure to override President Obama’s January 8th veto of H.R. 3762, the “pro-life budget reconciliation bill.” This bill contains a provision that would cut off most federal funds to Planned Parenthood for one year — about $400 million.
In addition, the bill would repeal many major parts of the Obamacare law, including the program that provides taxpayer subsidies to about 1,000 health plans that pay for elective abortions.
A snowstorm delayed the originally scheduled override vote – the delay gives you more time add your voice to the cry to cut Planned Parenthood’s funding and to repeal anti-life provisions of Obamacare.
