The house of representatives has just passed the GOP version of health care. Now it will move to the Senate where it's future is uncertain.

Republicans in the U.S. House pushed through their long-promised repeal of President Barack Obama's health insurance law Thursday, and the legislation now faces an uncertain future in the Senate.

Passage of the bill that would replace the Affordable Care Act came after intense lobbying of lawmakers by President Trump the previous day.

It passed on a vote of 217 to 213, one vote more than the minimum needed.

If that means no more mandate, then I'll be happy.

If this gets through I hope the GOP are ready to lose at least the Senate in 2018. The AHCA doesn't really do anything to solve the problems of the ACA while at the same time screwing over a number of people, especially the working class.

So much for that whole promise of 3 days to sit down and read through the entire final bill before a vote in the house? Just ramrod it through before everyone gets to fully read into the little details, which is what I've heard them complain about for the last 7 years.

Finally some good news out of that snip show called DC.

Still gotta passed the senate though.

Most that's been done in YEARS!

That's how we got the ACA to begin with.

Can't cry foul now.

And so it begins...

Obamas march towards irrelevance!!

His impact is being completely erased...

As predicted [by me] Obama will be reduced to a parentheses in the history books.

I wish Trump would hold a press conference and spike an actual football...
Then drop an actual mic and walk off..

So long Obama legacy!!

Depends on if they change the rules or not. 60 now. They could be like the dems and use budget reconciliation

I actually didn't take a stand either way good or bad...Just saying that it passed a hurdle is all.....

You obviously have a strong opinion so let's hear yours.

That was something else faked,

Right along with his birth certificate.

And his presidency.

My sources tell me that the media is going to be doing stories (starting today) about the billions of people dying now because of Trump.

If he signs this, the earth will be destroyed.
