House fires back at Trump by passing ObamaCare expansion
By Peter Sullivan - 06/29/20 05:22 PM EDT



The House on Monday passed a bill to expand the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as Democrats seek to hammer President Trump and Republicans on health care heading into the November elections.

The legislation, which passed in a largely party-line vote of 234 to 179, would increase the 2010 health law’s subsidies that help people afford their premiums and add more federal funding for Medicaid expansion.

Democrats timed the vote to contrast with the Trump administration’s legal brief filed with the Supreme Court last week calling for the ACA to be struck down, a move Democrats said would be even more harmful during the coronavirus pandemic.

“How can it be that at this very moment, when the value of the ACA is so plainly obvious to tens of millions of Americans, the administration is in court trying to strike it down?” said Rep. Tom Malinowski (D-N.J.), one of several first-term lawmakers in the House facing competitive reelection races who spoke in favor of the bill.

Pay attention republicans... This is how you fight a legislative war....
Force the opposing party to vote it down, don't hold it because you know it won't pass.
