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.

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.

I was just about to post this....One hurdle down.
Indeed...a veritable landslide! So please explain why this will be a good thing for Americans.

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!!
