Two House Committees Approve Healthcare Legislation:  Today The House Ways and Means Committee approved the American Health Care Act (AHCA) in a 23 to 16 vote along party lines.  The markup lasted 18 hours, ending at 4:30 a.m. today.  The House Energy and Commerce Committee voted 31 to 23, also along party lines, to advance the legislation this afternoon after nearly 27 hours of debate.  The AHCA now heads to the House Budget Committee where the two drafts of the legislation will be merged.
