Republican Rep. John Faso voted in committee on Thursday to advance the measure replacing the Affordable Care Act out of the House Budget Committee.

Faso, during the meeting, spoke against a Democratic-backed amendment that would have prevented the replacement bill, known as the American Health Care Act, from taking effect until the federal government in the form of the Health and Human Services secretary certifies the number of uninsured people and out-of-pocket expenses would not increase and overall benefits would not declined.

In a statement during the meeting, Faso called the amendment “aspirational.”

“It doesn’t offer any specifics, it just says what they would like and what they would wish,” he said. “It is typical Washington. That’s the problem. People are sick and tired of what Washington does, which is often nothing.”

However, Faso did back a motion that recommended measures blocking funding to Planned Parenthood organizations for a year be removed from the legislation.

Faso did vote in favor of a motion to recommend that provisions related to stopping funding to Planned Parenthood affiliates for one year be taken out of the bill. He previously told Republican colleagues that it would be a “grave mistake” to include the Planned Parenthood provision in the bill.

Still, adding to the political dimension of the vote over the health care legislation, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee blasted Faso’s vote for discharging the bill from committee.

“Representative Faso is now on the record in favor of a health care bill that imposes an unfair age tax on older Americans, jacks up health insurance premiums, and rips away coverage from millions so that Faso can cut taxes for health insurance CEOs,” said DCCC spokesman Evan Lukaske. “Not only did Faso cast the deciding vote for this boardroom bailout, but he broke his promise to New York women by voting to defund Planned Parenthood. Faso now owns this debacle until Election Day.”
