The American Health Care Act won enough votes in the House to move to the Senate floor. However, it still has to garner enough votes before it will become law with the President's signature. But, anonymous sources are saying that it has caused discontent among some House Republicans and the state senators they represent.

Usually, members of a particular party tend to vote along party lines, even if they are unhappy with the bill they are casting their vote for. To appease their party, many Republicans casted their votes to help Donald Trump finally dissolve the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

GOP Senators' nightmare

The current Health Care Law was championed by ex-President Barack Obama during his tenure as the United States President. Now that the AHCA is getting ready to be debated in the Senate, many GOP senators are unhappy with their representatives' vote for the Obamacare replacement bill.

An election will occur next year, and some are gearing up to run for a seat in the Senate. The Republican Party promised for many years that once they were in government again, they would work on a new healthcare bill. However, the vote that some recently case has become a nightmare for quite a few senators.

Several sources reported that some senators are currently at odds with their representatives on Capitol Hill.

Not to mention, many have received backlash from voters. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W. VA.), reportedly said the ACHA replacement bill will have dire consequences for people in her region. She also added that if the expansion of the Medicaid program is removed, there will be consequences related to some drug treatments -- particularly for facilities that depend on the opioid funding provided by the Obamacare Medicaid extension.

Republicans vying for senate seats unhappy with vote

Another huge problem with the new bill is that 31 states will see huge cuts in healthcare funding. According to analysts, the expansion of Medicaid, if cut, would have federal spending cuts or grants removed from many state coffers. An excellent example of the Republican discourse is Senator Rob Portman, who has publicly denounced the House bill that Rep.

Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio) voted for. Tiberi claimed that his vote for the GOP’s ACHA bill will ultimately help save the US healthcare system. Sen. Portman reportedly is set to challenge Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio).

Representative Evan Jenkins (R-W. VA.) will challenge Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W. VA.). Additionally, David McKinley (R-W. VA.) and Alex Mooney (R-W. VA.) are both seeking seats in the Senate. Ultimately, the vote for the American Health Care Act, according to sources, may have already cemented the outcome of the 2018 US Senate race.
