US lawmakers to vote today to replace Obamacare


In US, lawmakers will vote today to repeal and replace Obamacare which makes quality health insurance more affordable and available to the Americans. House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy said the lawmakers will be voting on the health care bill and it would be passed.

The announcement comes after a new health care reform bill gained momentum when two key Republican representatives, who previously objected to the bill said they could now support it.

The Republican bill is known as the American Health Care Act. It would repeal most Obamacare taxes, including a penalty for not buying health insurance. The bill would slash funding for Medicaid, a program that provides insurance for the poor.
