The bill passed. Here’s what happens next:
- Congress leaves for recess. If your Rep voted for the repeal, go to their district offices and GIVE THEM HELL. Go to their houses. Call their local offices. Show up at town halls. TELL THEM THEY JUST VOTED TO KILL PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT.
- The Senate must also pass the bill, but in order to pass the bill, there needs to be a cost estimate by the CBO. This will probably lead to more bad press for the bill.
-The Senate is more moderate than the House, and will revise the bill to make it passable on their end.
- If the revisions are large, the bill may be kicked back to the House, or inconsistencies may be settled in a committee.
TLDR; THIS SHIT IS NOT OVER. CALL YOUR FUCKING SENATORS.
