infant's name to avoid problems, but that they could take their chances at the gate. that is where they say one gate agent said, it would be okay to use the ticket. jessica castro, abc 7 news. all right, thank you. raising a toast to a new career, a west coast company gives you the chance to do that while seeing the world. we'll tell you where to apply. live look right now from the emeriville camera. blue skies out there, foggy to

someday, gus will invent this thing and change the world. this is the thing that could change gus' world. and this is the doctor that could cure that thing so he can grow up to invent this thing. sutter health. proudly caring for northern california, birthplace of pioneers. has crazy low prices. do you know how we do it?nia, - how? - bargainomics! say, if california has a bumper crop and produces too many oranges. or a winemaker in sonoma suddenly has 1000 bottles too many. we've got name-brand, top-quality groceries you see the bottom left-hand corner, 216 yes votes in order to pass this bill would be a dramatic change in health care, how americans get health
11:17 am
insurance and health care coverage, seven years in the making for republicans. they need 216 votes in order to pass this bill. remember, six weeks ago they did not have the votes. they had to pull the bill from the floor. right now they are one vote short. there it is, the 216 votes they need to pass this bill, and it appears with the clock running out there that the republican party in the house of representatives has passed the repeal of obamacare. let's tell you what this can mean. it would mean an historic and dramatic transformation for most americans. it would end the individual and employer mandates passed by president trump in 210 and the subsidies as well, replace them with fewer tax credits. it also eliminates almost $900 billion in taxes passed by president obama that would go largely to the wealthy and it would take a little over a trillion dollars from health care benefits from the poor and middle class most of that coming
11:18 am
from the medicaid expansion and it affects health savings accounts, as well. i will go to our correspondent john carl as we keep our eye on that right there on the house of representatives where they have 217 votes, enough to pass that bill. only 20 "no" votes on the republican side. a big win for speaker of the house paul ryan and president trump, john. >> a big win for the president and this is one, george, where it looked like he had lost. he was about to do this in march, didn't have the votes. they pulled the bill and they tried again to do it last week and pulled the bill before they got to a vote. this was the president bringing back a bill that many, including many in his own party, republican leadership on capitol hill had essentially thought was dead and gone. his first major legislative victory, but george, this is also something that he will have to defend in the years to come. very interesting speech on the floor right before the vote came from nancy pelosi who said
11:19 am
republicans will have the provisions of this bill tattooed to their forehead. they will have to defend that. >> there we have it right there. the gavel comes down. the bill has passed, 217 "yes votes." >> right there for the repeal of obamacare. i want to go to mary bruce who is right off that floor of the house right there. we heard the cheers go up there, mary. we were talking about president trump, this victory for president trump. a big victory, as well, for the speaker of the house, paul ryan and they really rallied their troops together in these final hours and days. >> absolutely, george. this is a day seven years in the making for house republicans and a huge day for speaker ryan and we heard hoim moments ago tryin to give an impassioned speech that they can deliver on the central promise to the american people. knowing that many republicans were sent to washington to fulfill this pledge. i have to tell you, you have been able to feel the electricity here all morning long. the republican meeting felt a
11:20 am
bit like a pep rally. they were trying to pump themselves up playing the theme song from "rocky." this has been incredibly close, though. it came down to the wire, and we should note this is just the first big step here. this will go on to the senate where it faces a huge uphill battle. >> and that was the point nancy pelosi was making, that this will get changeded a lot in the senate and the vote was taken, and i want to stay with mary for just a second and the vote was taken despite the fact that most members had not read what was in the bill and had not been scored by the congressional budget office. we know before the changes were made from that bill six weeks ago that the congressional budget office said this bill would cost 24 million americans health insurance over the next ten years. >> in many ways, a lot of members here flying blind today voting on a bill that hasn't yet been fully scoreded and we don't know yet the full impact on americans and how many could stand to lose coverage or how much this will cost. many republicans that i've spoken with today say they have
11:21 am
the original score even though some of those numbers were shocking, 24 million more uninsured over the next decade and $337 billion saved from the deficit and they've made a few amendments and a couple of changes since then and because they have the original score this bill, at least, will be in the same ballpark, george. >> we now know busses are lining up in the capitol and president trump is calling for a press conference in the rose garden and i'm with cecilia vega. the president also coming to new york later today which is why you are here right now. a big, personal effort by the president this week, as well. >> exactly. we are told by the white house that he made between 15 and 20 calls to house members himself. some of them telling us that he was personally responsible for flipping those "no" votes into the "yes" camp. this is redemption for president trump. he was on the line for this and he wanted this passed in his first hundred days. they were pushing privately to get this vote on this floor
11:22 am
sooner than actually came up and we know that now he has this delayed trip to new york because he's back at the white house hoping to celebrate with some of these members, but look, you heard mary talk about what's to come next and lindsay graham today tweeting this should be viewed with caution. this is not a done deal. the white house may be celebrating today, but they've got a long road ahead, george. >> jonathan carr, one of our chief correspondents. what kind of involvement will the president and the white house will have as they go as well as the senate. and it is causing confusion with his statements and one of the questions they'll face and eventually the house members is whether the bill there passing can meet the rhetoric and they're issuing as they talk about it. >> and the big piece of the promise that the president made over and over again not to touch the provision that guarantees coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. the president was incredibly involved, as you heard cecilia talk about in getting this over the line in the house.
11:23 am
my sense is that as this goes to the senate, you will see senate republicans take the lead in trying to address the concerns that various senators have. they have to get almost unanimous support in the senate. there are only 52 republicans and they need 50 to pass it. susan collins of maine is already almost a guaranteed "no" vote because this bill would defund planned parenthood and something she opposes and there's very little margin for error in the senate. >> as it goes over to the senate there will be more focus as to what is in the house bill, and we will have the congressional budget office score and we will have more indications on what this will mean for the preexisting conditions and we should try to explain that to people. in order to get the votes from the conservatives in the house the amendment basically waived the requirements and states could opt out of the preexisting condition requirement, but then one of the moderates would get
11:24 am
them to have $8 million to. pay for those who might lose their coverage or might have higher costs under this. the question is going to be is that going to be enough in the senate and is that a guarantee that those with preexisting conditions will get coverage? >> absolutely. so many medical experts say the $8 billion over five years to help cover those with preexisting conditions simply isn't enough. so many groups coming out against that amendment saying it is just a drop in the bucket. we don't know the full impact of that change just yet, but we will know it by the time senators get a look at this and they're likely to pick that apart to see what real impact it will have. there are also a lot of concerns about whether the prices will skyrocket for people with preexisting conditions and so the real impact of this remains unknown and senators are likely to scrutinize every aspect of this bill and everything from medicaid to how americans will pay for this coverage. this is really going to be ripped apart and looked at quite closely, george. >> big questions also cecilia vega, about the impact coming
11:25 am
into this and you heard the democratic leader nancy pelosi almost taunting the republicans, this repeal was not popular and people were concerned they could lose their coverage. >> and you hear this every day from people out in the field. i was just in atlanta last week and was talking with voters there, and people have real questions about how this impacts them. does this impact women who are pregnant? does this impact people who have cancer? and these are questions that we don't know the answers to yet. they have heard the president over and over and over say that he wanted to protect preexisting conditions and then you saw them waffle on that over the course of the last few weeks and conflicting messages coming out of the white house and let's not forget this is a president who said he didn't realize how tough health care would be to fight. so we are seeing him learn this in realtime just how tough politically this has been for him to fight. >> many more questions to answer and many more challenges ahead and many more questions for every american who cares about their health care and a big first step for the house of representatives and the republicans and they're heading
11:26 am
now down to the white house to celebrate with president trump. we'll be back. have a good day. this has been that was an abc news special report. the house passed a republican sponsored bill to repeal parts of the obamacare. it has to get through the senate, a tough battle, we'll analyze that this afternoon. of course, download the abc 7 news app for the latest. >> absolutely. enable push alerts when you do that. the weather. we have changes in the forecast. >> hopefully no questions after i finish this. >> yes, that's for sure. >> exactly. 65 at 7:30 when the warriors take on the jazz. going to be a nice day. nice time out there. we're going to win when you step out, 57, cooler than yesterday. i show sfo because the fog. the next couple mornings we'll have delays with the marine layer coming back. weekend showers, saturday, not a
