If victorious, Republicans will be having a big press conference at the beautiful Rose Garden of the White House immediately after vote!

They are rolling cases of beer into Capitol and coming to the White House afterwards for a celebration. Kind of remarkable. So far to go.

Well, there you have it:

To replace it with … a cluster of a health care bill.

Way to go, House GOP. Or, rather, most of the House GOP.

Conservatives may not be happy about this, but at least House Democrats seem to have found a silver lining. After the AHCA vote finished, Democrats reportedly burst into song:
Loud singing of "na Nan a na hey hey hey goodbye" in the house chamber. Seems like it came from Dems

As AHCA crosses the 216 magic number, House Dems on the floor sing "na na na na, hey hey hey, goodbye."

Nice to see they’re still committed to “going high” or whatever.
How mature of them. https://t.co/03933N9Rt1

House Dems have been waiting since 1993 to throw that "hey, hey, hey, goodbye" taunt back at Republicans.

Well, congratulations to them.
Why are Democrats singing that? I am confused… none of this makes any sense. https://t.co/cLMuTCpRc5

House Democrats visibly joyful after AHCA passes. Singing "hey hey hey goodbye" at GOP colleagues, implying they'll lose seats for this
— Haley Byrd (@byrdinator) May 4, 2017
We’ll see. Conservatives who are pissed at the GOP may indeed punish the party in 2018. But on the other hand, the Dems have been on quite the losing streak lately, so they may be singing at their own funeral.
In any event, Sweet Meteor Of Death, if you’re out there, now would be a pretty good time to pay a visit. Unless the Senate kills this thing first …

Re: those beers at the Capitol:
Here are the beers. Asked if they were going to a GOP conference meeting & he said "no, different meeting," no further details pic.twitter.com/ugS8oW4kGj

So we’ve at least got that cleared up. Sort of.
