Republicans pulled it off. The American Health Care Act (AHCA) cleared its first hurdle when it passed the House of Representatives on Thursday.

The House erupted in singing ‘Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye’ upon reaching the necessary 216 yea votes. The AHCA passed with a vote of 217 to 213.

The bill will now go on to the Senate for consideration, where its fate does not look promising.
