For the fiftieth time, the GOP-led House has voted on a measure to dismantle the Obama-backed health care law.

By a vote of 250-160, the House passed a measure that would eliminate the individual mandate tax penalty under the Affordable Care Act for one year. Twenty-seven Democrats voted for the legislation.

Like the measures passed before this one, the plan is destined to be ignored by the Senate, which is controlled by Democrats.
