39 Democrats Fold, Side With Republicans’ “Keep Your Cancelled Health Care Plan” Bill
by Tyler Durden
The Republicans’ “Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013” bill has passed the House (as somewhat expected). However, what is more critical – as we noted previously – is that a large number of Democrats broke ranks and voted for the bill.
*HOUSE VOTES 261-157 FOR REPUBLICAN BILL ON KEEPING HEALTH PLANS
*THIRTY-NINE DEMOCRATS JOIN REPUBLICANS ON HEALTH-POLICY BILL
39 House Democrats voted in favor, shunning Obama’s proclamation that he would veto the bill (which he described as “threatening the health care security of hard working, middle class families,”) anyway if it came to his desk. It is unlikely to pass the Senate.
