Republicans plan their – what, 80th?? – whack at repealing or replacing the ACA, with a House vote set for tomorrow.

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote Thursday on a controversial Republican bill that would repeal and replace key parts of Obamacare, the GOP’s majority leader said Wednesday night.

“We’re going tomorrow, yes we are,” said Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

Asked he if had the votes to win passage of the bill, McCarthy told NBC News, “Yes we do.”

“We will pass this bill,” McCarthy said. “I feel great about the [vote] count.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., said several days ago that he would not hold the vote without having those winning votes in hand.

No idea if this is the same plan floated a few months ago and aborted at the last second. Honestly I’m beginning to forget what the law is all about and who these “Republicans” are… We’ll see…

Of course, Speaker Ryan could pull the vote tonight depending on what his magic eight ball says.
