On October 23, the House passed a bill that would gut Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood. Obama is reportedly shaking in his boots as this bill passed in the House and has receiving an overwhelming amount of support from the American public.
The bill passed in the House 240-189, but could have a hard time being passed in the Senate — so, for now, it’s fate is unclear.
But if the bill does pass, it could change history. Obamacare is the biggest disaster in modern American history, and has destroyed our healthcare system. Gutting the healthcare act would be a huge first step towards re-claiming the right to control our own medical care.
Even though many members of the Senate will likely not vote to pass the bill, there is still a lot of hope. Fox News reported:
Though Republicans have gone after the Affordable Care Act before, as well as Planned Parenthood, this bill is unique in that it uses a parliamentary tactic to make it easier to pass the Senate. Republicans wrapped the bill in a procedure that would shield it from a Senate filibuster — meaning it will need only 51 votes to pass that chamber, as opposed to 60.
But it’s no guarantee that the 54 Senate Republicans would back it, as it faces potential opposition from moderate Republicans concerned it goes too far and GOP senators running for president saying it doesn’t go far enough. A pair of presidential contenders — Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. — along with Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, sent a letter this week to House Republicans urging opposition to the bill, saying “This simply isn’t good enough.”
Still, House Republicans cast the bill as a way to would help them sharpen political differences with Democrats for next year’s elections.
Obama is NOT happy about the bill. He has already released a statement claiming that it “would take away critical benefits and health care coverage from hard-working middle-class families.”
Obviously, the president is using scare tactics to prevent Americans from supporting the bill.
SHARE if you support this bill, and gutting Obamacare and Planned Parenthood for good!!!
