If Republicans move forward with a vote on their plan to repeal Obamacare this week, House Democrats have vowed to punish them by opposing a short-term spending bill on which the GOP will most certainly need their support.
Democratic whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) issued the warning Thursday morning to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif) in the following email:
“If Republicans announce their intention to bring their harmful TrumpCare bill to the House Floor tomorrow or Saturday, I will oppose a one-week Continuing Resolution and will advise House Democrats to oppose it as well.
“Republicans continue to struggle to find the votes to pass a bill that will kick 24 million Americans off their health coverage, allow discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions, and impose an age tax on older Americans. That’s why they are trying to jam it through the House before their Members can hear from the American people this weekend about their opposition to this horrible legislation.”
