washington - The US House of Representatives voted on a Thursday evening with a small majority of a few votes to amend the care law introduced under the previous President Obama. Most Republican members of the house voted for. All 193 Democratic members voted against.
The approval of the plan to replace Obamacare with a law drafted by the Republicans can be seen as a success for President Trump. In March, an earlier version of this law passed before it came to the vote.
The Senate must approve the plan. It is expected that this will last for a month, as many senators still want to make changes to the plans. The Republicans have 52 seats a very small majority in the Senate, against 48 seats for the Democrats.
Opponents of Trump's plans are afraid that millions of Americans will be reinstated with the new law without health insurance. In addition, stricter conditions are imposed to ensure chronically ill and there is the fear that they need to pay a lot more money for care.
