House Republicans pass bill to replace and repeal Obamacare

The US House of Representatives passed a bill to replace the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, handing President Donald Trump his first key legislative victory. But it still needs to go a long way as the replacement bill, named as the American Health Care Act, will turn into a law only after being passed by the Senate.

The bill could pass through some unhappy Republicans, thus there are no assurances it will complete the course. Notably, the Republicans got just enough support to push the bill through the House with the 217-213 vote. Now, it will be directed to the Senate for consideration.

Significantly, no Democrats have voted for the bill.

The lawmakers were greeted by people after they left the House, mostly Democrats and supporters of Obamacare, chanting “shame” was all over. Besides, aides of former President Barack Obama also vented on social media.

The new bill might be altered in the senate by Republicans who don’t like everything their colleagues have sent for consideration and approval. If enacted, the new law is likely to retain some essentials of Obamacare like the one prohibiting insurers from refusing clients with pre-existing medical conditions.

It remains very popular with Americans cutting across party lines. President Trump himself has said he would like to keep it in the replacement bill.
