Major victory for Donald Trump

In the history of US, i think this is the first time that an elected President by people of America facing the criticism
at highest lever. In a relief to Donald Trump, Yesterday The US House of Representatives approved a bill on Thursday to repeal major parts of Obamacare and replace it with a Republican healthcare plan, handing President Donald Trump his biggest legislative victory but setting up a tough fight in the Senate.With the 217-213 vote, the Republicans obtained just enough support to push the legislation through the House, sending it to the Senate for consideration even though no democratics voted the bill.

The bill’s passage represented a step toward fulfilling a top Trump campaign pledge and a seven-year Republican wish to dismantle Democratic former president Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law. But the effort now faces new hurdles in the Senate, where the Republicans have only a 52-seat majority in the 100-seat chamber and where just a few Republican defections could sink the bill.

Thursday’s vote was also a political victory for House Speaker Paul Ryan, demonstrating his ability to pull together
a fractured Republican caucus after two failed attempts this year to win consensus on the healthcare legislation.
Democrats are hoping that the Republicans’ vote to repeal Obamacare will spark a voter backlash in next year’s midterm congressional elections. Some 20 million Americans gained healthcare coverage under Obama’s 2010 Affordable Care Act, which has recently gathered support in public opinion polls.
