House to vote Thursday on Obamacare repeal

House-to-vote
The House GOP’s seven-year crusade to abolish Obamacare all comes down to Thursday.

Republican leaders have called a vote on a plan to replace the health care law, signaling surging confidence that they’re on the cusp of earning enough support to pass it. Though it’s still unclear whether House Speaker Paul Ryan and his team have commitments from the 216 members necessary to pass the bill, scheduling a vote suggests they believe they’re closer than ever.

The moment still promises to be heart-pounding. About 18 Republican lawmakers are publicly opposed to the GOP plan, leaving leaders room for only a handful of additional defections. And at least two dozen members are still publicly undecided. House vote-counters crisscrossed the chamber late Wednesday, pigeonholing reluctant colleagues in a last -ditch bid to put the measure over the top.

The vote will be a defining moment of President Donald Trump’s early tenure. The president spent his political capital on enacting the measure, known as the American Health Care Act, devoting Tuesday and Wednesday to lobbying undecided lawmakers in a flurry of phone calls.

    Does anyone other than me remember that obama care got no republican votes? Now they want to save it. I would recommend they pay attention to what they should be for or against on it’s merit rather than the party name attached to it. I would say they should go along with Trump on the things that are good for the people.

    They said on the news this morning that much isn’t known about this bill. Hopefully this bill will be better than the budget bill they approved yesterday. I’m about to lose patience with Paul Ryan’s shenanigans.

    IF THEY DO NOT PASS A BILL GETTING RID OF OBAMA CARE, THEY CAN KISS THEIR CONTROL GOODBY NEXT YEAR. WE THE PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF LYING POLITICIANS, SAY ANYTHING TO GET IN OFFICE. ALL I WANT IS THE TRUTH. DONALD TRUMP IS DOEING EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO. YES I VOTED FOR HIM AND I AM A REG. DEM.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT AN AMERICAN FIRST. PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON THERE.

    EVERY ONE AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME ESPECIALLY THE 5 CAMPS IN NORTH VA. CLOSE TO WASHINGTON.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED.

    READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC. (TAKE OVER WASHINGTON, COULD BE) WE WILL HAVE A LOT OF HEADLESS POLITICIANS IF SO.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    WHY IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY FOR A OPEN BORDER. COULD IT BE TO GET FREE DOPE, GOODGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND LISTEN TO IT ALL.

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    There was nothing wrong with our healthcare. There were plenty of programs for people with low income. Remember, the first thing Hitler did, was government controlled healthcare.

  • TexRancher

    We will see just how many RINOs will be voting to keep ObamaCare alive in this action. We voted for total REPEAL and they have tried to keep parts of ObamaCare against our wishes. Keeping any of ObamaCare is as bad as keeping it all. There is just far too much CRAP in ObamaCare that has nothing to do with healthcare and everything to do with CONTROL and way too much legalize that lends it to be interpreted as they see fit!
    Government needs to get out of healthcare as they screw up everything they do trying to be all things to all people which is impossible!

      Petulant idealism is NOT a sustainable philosophy! When it works it’s corruption, it leads only to legislation like the Continuing Resolution passed yesterday!
