Here is the text of H.R. 3762 from the 114th Congress, the budget reconciliation bill that would have defunded and partially repealed key sections of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The bill was passed by both the Senate, with all Democrats and two Republican Senators, Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mark Kirk (R-IL), voting against the bill, and the House of Representatives, with one Democrat, Collin Peterson (D-MN), voting for the bill and three Republicans, Robert Dold (R-IL), Richard Hanna (R-NY), and John Katko (R-NY), voting against the bill.  Of the five Republicans voting against H.R. 3762, only Senator Collins and Representative Katko will be in the 115th Congress.

The bill was vetoed by President Barack Obama on January 8, 2016. By a vote of 241-186, the House failed to override the veto by the required two-thirds majority.

The principal sponsor of the bill was Representative Tom Price (R-GA), who has been nominated by President-elect Donald Trump as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
