Helping the President to keep a promise he made four years ago, the House of Representatives voted to allow Americans to keep their health plans for one more year.
Nearly 40 House Democrats defied President Obama and helped the Republican majority pass a bill Friday that lets Americans keep, for one year, health plans that do not comply with ObamaCare.
The defections from 39 members of Mr. Obama’s party highlighted the pressure on Congress to help people who lost coverage because of the president’s signature law, as balky websites keep a veil over alternative plans and pressure mounts on the Democrat-led Senate to forge a remedy.
Oddly enough, the bill was passed despite a veto threat from President Obama, who opposed it. This comes as a surprise considering the president said he was in favor of allowing Americans to temporarily keep their plans.
