The House Voted To Repeal the Affordable Care Act and People Are Ticked

By Abby Heugel

fter months of infighting, House Republicans finally passed their bill 217-213 to repeal and replace Obamacare. The bill now heads to the Senate for a vote before President Trump can sign it.

Broadly, the bill loosens Obamacare’s rules on what insurance companies must offer in their plans, opening the door for plans that are cheaper but offer weaker coverage. Most controversially, the American Health Care Act would allow insurance companies to charge people with pre-existing conditions higher premiums than healthy people in some states that choose to do so.
