Obamacare Opt Out Fails In Alabama House

The Alabama House of Representatives took up legislation this afternoon that would have preserved the freedom of Alabama citizens to make decisions about and provide for their own health care regardless of federal mandates. Sponsored by Rep. Blaine Galliher, HB60 failed by a vote of 59-28.

8 Republicans voted “P”.  P indicates that they did not vote or were not present.  You can find out if your legislator was one of them by clicking here.  Update:  I’m told several of the Republicans who voted “P” were not present for this scheduled vote.

Another Update:  According to ALISON, Rep. Bill Roberts and Rep. Howard Sanderford intended to vote Yes.

**Rep. Owen Drake is listed as “P” because he was not present for the vote.  He is currently in the hospital in Birmingham.
