House Passes Republican Bill to Change Obamacare

On Thursday the president said he would uphold his promise of "if you like it, you can keep it," and Friday the House of Representatives tried to make that official by voting to let people to keep their cancelled insurance plans.

Thirty nine Democrats crossed party lines Friday to back a GOP bill that would allow people to keep those cancelled plans they like so much, and also allow people to continue enrolling in those plans.

Reports say it is unlikely the bill will pass through the Democrat-controlled Senate, but even if it does, the White House says it will veto the bill because it "threatens the health security of hard-working, middle-class families". Republicans however, seem to feel the same way about the Affordable Care Act.

Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Tex, said, "The White House doesn't even know how they are going to implement the plan they announced yesterday."

Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Cal, said, "The president has cruelly given people false hope while severely damaging the fundamental concept that separates democracy from despotism - the rule of law."
