"A shameful failure of policy and morality by GOP today," Clinton tweeted Thursday evening. "Fight back on behalf of the millions of families that will be hurt by their actions." She also retweeted a message from the Swing Left grassroots network, which included a link to donate to the Democrats who will eventually oppose the 35 Republicans representing swing districts who voted for the health-care bill. The AHCA narrowly passed Thursday morning, 217-213, with 20 Republicans and every Democrat voting against it.
