The revised Republican-backed American Health Care Act narrowly passed in the House of Representatives today. The vote was 217-213. Every Democrat and 20 Republicans voted no. This is just one step for the GOP towards removing and replacing Obamacare. House Speaker Paul Ryan canceled a vote on the bill in March when it was clear it would not have enough votes. This revised measure was worked out to gain support from both moderate and strict conservative factions. The bill eliminates tax penalties for those who do not buy coverage. It still allows grown children to stay on parent's insurance up to age 26. Patients with pre-existing conditions can still get coverage, but states could get waivers that free insurers to charge them higher rates. Towards the end of the vote, House Democrats could be heard singing "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" to Republican lawmakers. They insinuate that those representatives who voted 'yes' will all be voted out by unhappy constituents come 2018.

A fire broke out this afternoon in an Olney apartment complex. It started around 3:45 p.m. at the Hillside Gardens Apartments on the 6000 block of Cresentville Road. Heavy flames and smoke poured out of upper units of the building. Firefighters brought it under control by 4:15 p.m. The building manager says that two units are completely destroyed while other suffered smoke and water damage. About 2 dozen people are displaced. No one was injured. See video of the fire below.

Tonight, Cloudy, Rain moving in after midnight, temperatures in the upper 50's this evening in Center City
