People Raise Millions To Unseat Republicans Who Voted For Trumpcare In 2018


Yesterday, the American Health Care Act (AHCA) narrowly passed through Congress with 217 votes to 213, with several House Republicans voting against the bill proposed by President Donald Trump and the GOP. 

That fact that the bill barely made it through on attempt number three is a fairly accurate representation of how unpopular the bill is. When it was first proposed, a Quinnipiac University poll found that only 17% of Americans supported the bill, while 56% opposed it. That's hardly surprising when the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said that it would result in 24 million more Americans losing insurance within a decade.
