Democrats seized on Tuesday’s Obamacare repeal vote in the U.S. House of Representatives to raise cash, sending a slew of fundraising spam to their email lists, raising the alarm–and raising potential millions of dollars from alarmed supporters.
“The new GOP Congress just voted to undermine Obamacare again, which they’ve done over 50 times,” read one email from “DNC War Room.” The email also provided bullet points claiming that “the law is working.”
The Republicans’ latest effort marks the first vote that has a chance of passing both houses of Congress, following the GOP’s victory in the 2014 midterm election. President Barack Obama has vowed to veto the bill, as he has threatened on prior occasions.
