So, you got the Affordable Care Act repealed in Congress. I’m sure you are pretty ecstatic. One thing I found interesting to note is that the Congressional Exemption is still in place and it is set to be dealt with separately. Now it’s hard to say whether this is for their own convenience, or for the sake of not putting off this vote once again, but interesting to note nonetheless.
I supposed one could say it’s not over until the fat lady sings, because this still has to go through the senate, but I think you and I both know it’s a pretty done deal.
Every House Democrat voted no, but unfortunately they do not hold the majority so with 217 House Republican voting yes, it passed. It’s so frustrating to see how close the margins were, but the vote count just wasn’t enough to stop this in the second round.
This is only going to get uglier, and there is not much that can be done. The country will just have to sit back and see how you decide to write our future for us.
