Unless you live under a rock, you probably know that the American Health Care Act passed the House of Representatives today, to the joy of Republicans and conservatives. It is the first step in making sure that Obamacare is completely gutted and repealed.
Apparently not everyone was as excited about the prospect of dismantling Obamacare as you or me. Twenty Republicans sided with Democrats in voting against the bill.
Drum roll please….
Here are the 20 Republicans who voted against the AHCA:
Andy Biggs – Arizona
Mike Coffman – Colorado
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen – Florida
Thomas Massie – Kentucky
Walter B. Jones – North Carolina
Frank LoBiond- New Jersey
Christopher Smith – New Jersey
Leonard Lance – New Jersey
Dan Donovan – New York
John Katko – New York

Dave Reichert – Washington
In an official statement, the Republican Party patted themselves on the back for what they called “an important first step toward fixing our healthcare system.”
“Republicans have taken an important first step toward fixing our healthcare system. Obamacare is falling apart and has saddled the American people with rising costs, less choice, and skyrocketing premiums. The time to act is now, and that’s exactly what Republicans have done.”
It’s important to call your Congressmen and give them words of encouragement. While they also need to know that this is clearly not the end of the road, they also need to know that we have their backs and are going to stand with them regardless of what the Democratic party is going to try to throw at them. It’s not the 100% repeal that we want, we’re going in the right direction. Perhaps by the end of his first 4 years, Trump will have demolished the whole thing!
