FWIW - Info And The WHOLE Tumpcare Bill Passed By The House

Aka: H.R.1628 - American Health Care Act of 2017
https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/1628/text

ETA: Apparently the above doesn't include the MacArthor Amendment. Did the Upton Amendment pass too. It's here as well...

I wanted to see the exact wording on a few things and thought I'd share it here for others use, dissection and discussion.

1. You're also missing the Upton amendment

(and perhaps others I'm not specifically aware of)

3. I just ran across that and edited in. Thanks for the help.

I like to know the exact wording of bills when I'm going to go after someone... like my Republican representative who voted yes against her constituents best interests.

5. Yup

I was looking for these at 2 AM the day before the vote so I could be fully informed when I called. They were not on thomas.gov (still aren't), and the CBO score on thomas.gov is from long ago.

There may still be more out there I don't know by name. . .

No wonder so many of them didn't read it before voting in favor of it..

4. It is a lot of words and some...

of them rely on their staff to do the reading for them way to much.

Maybe they should take more time reading and researching bills themselves and less time taking breaks eh?
