The Republican Obamacare replacement bill, the American Health Care Act, just passed the House by a two-vote margin. Boyishly handsome MSNBC analyst Steve Kornacki notes that 14 of the crucial Republican votes for the measure came from districts that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016:

Certainly Democrats will attempt to use Thursday's party-line House passage of a wildly unpopular bill to flip districts besides the ones above, but the list at least provides a tidy starting point for enraged progressive activists to focus their enragement. Which is an effort that's already begun:
In any case, pretty wild that seven of those "Yes" votes came from districts located in liberal/communist/homosexual California, huh? And wow, Reps. David Valadao of central California and Carlos Curbelo of the Florida Keys sure have some stones! Look at those Clinton victory margins! Good luck, guys!
