U.S. House passes healthcare bill in major Trump victory.

The U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill on Thursday to repeal major parts of Obamacare and replace it with a Republican healthcare plan, handing President Donald Trump his biggest legislative victory but setting up a tough fight in the Senate. With the 217-213 vote, Republicans obtained just enough support to push the legislation through the House, sending it to the Senate for consideration. No Democrats voted for the bill. The bill’s passage represented a step toward fulfilling a top Trump campaign pledge and a seven-year Republican quest to dismantle Democratic former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law.

 

Strategy to save the Obamacare law

BreakingNews @en di

President Obama met on Capitol Hill several of Democrats Senators and Representatives, including the minority whips of the House of Representatives and of the Senate. Obama is working together with his Congressmen to try to work out a strategy to save the law on health insurance, renamed Obamacare. In fact, until now Obamacare has survived thanks to the presidential veto power, but by January 20 will no longer be possible. A meeting, similar to the one that Obama had today, was also made by the Republicans, under the guidance of Vice-President Mike Pence. In this meeting the Republicans choose, on the advice of the President of the Commission for the Budget of the Senate, Mike Enzi, to scrap Obamacare with a procedure that requires a simple majority. In fact, the Republicans can count on a majority in both houses of Congress.
