On Thursday, May 4th, the House Republicans passed their controversial healthcare bill with a 217-213 vote. If the bill goes into action, people with pre-existing conditions such as disabilities, diseases, injuries or other conditions will have to pay more money for their coverage.
It was also mentioned that pregnancy, sexual assault and rape are considered pre-existing conditions. The bill will allow states to discriminate against people based on their medical history. However, Senators are already having issues with the bill.
Senate Republicans said the process to overhaul the bill would take weeks. We have 52 Republican and 48 Democrat senators. 48 Democrats aren’t expected to support the repeal, but if 3 of 52 Republicans also oppose the bill, it will fail.
