1 Min Read

WASHINGTON, May 4 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives narrowly approved legislation on Thursday to repeal major portions of Obamacare and replace it with a Republican healthcare plan, handing a major legislative victory to President Donald Trump.

By a vote of 217-213, Republicans obtained just enough votes to push the legislation through the House, sending it to the Senate for consideration. No Democrats voted for the House bill. (Reporting by Richard Cowan; Editing by Frances Kerry and Tim Ahmann)
