‘ House Passes Legislation 247 – 167 Allowing People to Keep Their Insurance Plans Under Obamacare’

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – September 12 – The House passed legislation Thursday to allow people to keep their insurance plans under ObamaCare even if the coverage doesn’t meet all of its requirements The Hill reported. 

Twenty-five Democrats broke ranks to help pass the bill, 247-167, including Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Nick Rahall (W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), who are among the most vulnerable incumbents running for re-election this year.

The vote offered those Democrats an opportunity to distance themselves from the president on the still-controversial Affordable Care Act. 

A proposal by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would let people keep cheap group health plans outlawed by ObamaCare would bring in more than $1 billion in tax revenue over the next decade, according to a report released by the Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday.
