Eric Cantor explains all those other votes to repeal Obamacare

Former President Barack Obama speaks after being presented with the 2017 Profile in Courage award during ceremonies at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum Sunday, May 7, 2017, in Boston.

And in their rush to pass the bill without even knowing its cost or impact, the Republicans were guilty of legislative malpractice - worse than when Democrats forced through the Affordable Care Act. Among the vulnerable Republicans is two-term New Jersey Representative Tom MacArthur, who helped revive the bill by authoring a key amendment on pre-existing conditions. The campaign is slated to run in congressional districts in 15 states.

"I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn't take a lot of courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential", he said. So, by the time the mid-terms happened in 2010, the unpopularity of that bill, which was not mitigated by any benefits by then, produced a 62-seat loss in the House for the Democrats.

"That is an important issue to me because I don't think that low-income women should be denied their choice of health care providers, for family planning, cancer screenings, for well women care (but) it's not the only issue in this huge bill", she said.

As lawmakers prepared to vote, House Speaker Paul Ryan told them: "Many of you have been waiting seven years to cast this vote".
