The Republicans have finally gotten their act together and were able to pass their Healthcare bill. This bill will replace Obamacare and has 3 phases, this bill being phase 1; reconciliation, regulatory flexibility, and additional bills that cannot be passed through reconciliation.

Via ABC news:

House Republicans have passed their ambitious plan to repeal and replace Obamacare after several fits and starts, sending the measure to the Senate, where it is expected to be significantly revised.
House Republicans will now head to the White House for a press conference.

Democrats warned that the changes will leave Americans worse off.
“Make no mistake – many people will die as a result of this bill,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Florida, said.
Republicans, who have been promising to repeal and replace Obamacare for seven years but have struggled to coalesce around a specific legislative proposal, said they planned on keeping their promise to constituents.

Most conservatives are not completely thrilled about the bill, but any thing is better than Obamacare. Addintionally, this gives Trump a huge legislative win under his belt and momentum moving on to tax reform.
