Obamacare passes in the House of Representatives



The House of Representatives has voted in favor of Obamacare, approving the same legislation as the Senate has passed. Obama will sign it, and it will become law.

But, the House doesn't really like the Senate bill, so it is working on a separate piece of legislation that is supposed to amend ("fix") many of the problems with the Senate bill. Indeed, many of the House Democrats who voted for the Senate's bill did not like it, but did so only because they were promised it would be amended to conform to something they could accept. They will be upset if the promises are not kept.

I don't think the House and Senate will be able to agree on changes, with the result that the first version of the bill will prevail--the one that the House would not have passed, had they known it would not be changed. In particular, a block of twelve pro-Life Democrats was unwilling to support a bill that allows federal funding of abortions, and they were counting on the fix-it bill to remove the funding. I don't think it will happen.:(
