The House of Representatives recently passed a healthcare reform bill along party lines. All 220 Republicans who were present voted “aye,” while all 209 Democrats sounded a unanimous “nay.”
Judging by that roll call, you’d think the bill — the CHOICE Arrangement Act — was full of partisan measures. But you’d be wrong.
The core of the bill is a bipartisan reform that would make health insurance more affordable and accessible for millions of Americans who work for small businesses. Democrats voted against the legislation because of other provisions that they argue undermine Obamacare.
