The Republican Party’s health care reform bill has taken another step forward in Congress, passing a vote of the House.
The vote was 285-188, with all GOP members voting in favor of it, and only three Democrats voting against it.
The bill now goes to President Donald Trump for his signature.
The White House said in a statement that Trump will sign the bill, though it was not immediately clear how much he would support.
Trump has been criticized by many for his handling of the healthcare reform, which many have said is not fully affordable and which many Republicans say has not provided sufficient coverage.
The legislation includes an additional $8 billion in funding for Medicaid and $8 trillion in tax credits to help people afford their healthcare.
Trump was criticized for saying at a news conference that “we’re going to be very generous” to people who are currently uninsured, which is the only way the legislation could work.
The healthcare reform legislation includes a provision that allows insurers to keep offering plans that cover more people if they are more expensive than what is required under current law.
The Senate legislation would require insurers to offer plans that offer at least 10% fewer benefits, or to cover people with pre-existing conditions.
It also would prohibit insurers from charging higher premiums to people with preexisting conditions, as some states are doing.
The House bill would require the states to create plans that are not available in most places.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., called the healthcare legislation “unprecedented” and said it would cost Americans billions of dollars in additional premiums and deductibles.
The president is expected to sign the legislation later on Friday.
The American Medical Association, which represents physicians and hospitals, issued a statement calling the bill a “historic step in the right direction” in helping lower healthcare costs.
The AMA called the House bill a continuation of the GOP’s failed policies to privatize health care, which has been an ongoing problem.
