House Republican leaders have set a Thursday vote on a bill that would repeal and replace ObamaCare, they announced Wednesday.
The vote announcement indicates that the GOP has enough votes to pass the so-called American Health Care Act (AHCA) and send the measure to the Senate for consideration. Republican leaders had spent several days scrambling to round up the votes.
“We’re gonna pass it,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Fox News, adding that the bill had the support of the required 216 members to pass out of the chamber.
The bill’s passage would mark the culmination of seven years’ worth of promises by Republicans to undo Obama’s signature legislative achievement and and provide a long-sought win for President Donald Trump, who has been in office more than 100 days without a significant congressional victory save Senate confirmation of a Supreme Court justice.
