Just six weeks after the first bill was pulled

The House of Representatives is set to vote on a new health care bill Thursday that will repeal and replace former President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act—a 100-day promise President Donald Trump fell short of.

The vote comes just six weeks after House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the first bill, called the American Health Care Act, due to a lack of votes. Changes have been made to the bill since then, including the MacArthur Amendment for people with pre-existing conditions. The MacArthur Amendment alone reportedly helped swing members of the House Freedom Caucus to support the new bill, according to TIME. But some moderate Republicans Thursday still had reservations.
