It was a close fight but a vote of 217 to 213 it passes.

It's a fight that's just begun. They rammed the bill through with the expectation that the Senate will heavily amend it and kick it back to the House. Pretty telling when they're in such a rush to push it through before estimates could accurately be made on how the bill would affect Americans.

The last CBO analysis made before the most recent amendments estimated that, as a result, 24 million people would go without health insurance if the AHCA becomes the law of the land. And a provision in the most current version of the bill would take $600 billion out of health care because of tax cuts, including those for the rich. I'm not seeing how this is consistent with, "All life is precious."

Life is only precious when Republicans want to infringe upon women's rights.

Uh-huh. And now Democrats facing off against vulnerable House Republicans have one hell of a bombshell to use against them. Especially if this gets all the way through and the CBO's projections come to pass. I've never seen someone so enthusiastic to dig their own grave, but hey, when in Rome.

Pretty much, this. It's amazing how the Republicans are trying to shoot themselves in the foot just to make sure that one of their promises are met, despite how badly it'll impact citizens (unbeknownst to most of them). The "potential pre-conditions" (such as rape, domestic abuse, etc) are going to need filtering out at the Senate level if they (Republicans) are hoping to survive their re-election campaigns (we're already seeing a minor amount of resistance in Georgia that prompted a normally easy win for GOP being challenged enough to force a special election) coming up.

Them pushing through a bill at this speed is no different than when ACA was first formed. GOP will find that the weapon they used to get elected is going to be the same weapon used against them when mid-term elections come up this year and next.
