WASHINGTON – The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted Thursday afternoon to repeal the Affordable Care Act–commonly referred to as Obamacare–by a vote of 216-211. The measure passed by one vote.

The vote was viewed as a win for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who until yesterday could not garner enough votes to the repeal of Obamacare.
