House Republicans won today’s battle after narrowly passing the American Health Care Act — but come next year, they’ll be singing a different tune!
While Democrats certainly weren’t celebrating the Obamacare replacement bill being one step closer to a reality on Thursday, the vote put opposers in a singing mood.
As the GOP effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act passed by a 217-213 vote (with 0 votes from the minority party) Dems turned the House of Representatives into a sports arena by chanting the ultimate “fuck you” anthem, Steam‘s Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.
The late ├óΓé¼╦£60s rock song echoed Democrats’ proclamation that Republicans who voted for the AHCA — which will lead to 24 million Americans losing their insurance by 2026 — risk being voted out of office next year.
Though Republicans didn’t seem too bothered by the taunt, as Aides were spotted bringing alcohol into the Capitol to celebrate their victory.
Let’s hope come next year, the Democrats will be the ones celebrating after the House is purged of politicians who think sexual assault should be considered a pre-existing condition.
Watch the clip (below) to see Dems chant their warning!
The AHCA will now head to the Senate, where it will face another heated debate — and another chant, we hope.
