This isn’t football. It’s not about scoring points. #AHCA will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die.

With the rush to repeal the #AHCA, the only C.B.O. Republicans care about is that it Came from Barack Obama.

House Republicans just took healthcare away from American children with cancer but it's ok because they're so pro-life. #obamacare

Donald Trump and Republicans just celebrated voting to let thousands of Americans die so that billionaires get tax breaks. Think about that. pic.twitter.com/hbOp7k2TQe

I hope that we unseat every representative that voted for the GOP healthcare bill. It is a bill that will literally harm millions.

It's not hyperbolic to say after reading stories from people who will be bankrupted by one visit to a hospital that TRUMPCARE is criminal.

Is the House doing a traditional vote on healthcare or do they get to throw a baby out a window instead of voting yes?
