Final vote was 273-156. The sick Republicans were cheering when the override failed. Glad to see they find illness and death involving children as something to cheer for.
44 Republicans voted with Democrats and two Democrats crossed over. The most upsetting part of this is it shows that the "House of Representatives" doesn't represent the people. Instead a majority of the minority party choose to Represent the worst President in American history. They do not deserve to be re-elected.
Steve Benen makes a great point here:
Hereâ€™s the key number to keep in mind: last month 45 House Republicans voted for his bill. Today, that number dropped to 44.
In other words, after weeks of media scrutiny, public debate, constituent phone calls, right-wing smears of innocent families, and intense lobbying, the Republican Party ended up going backwards on providing healthcare for low-income kids.
I wonder how long until the wingnuts attack this person that changed sides?
