The House passed a bill Wednesday that would expand access to health insurance plans by extending subsidies to those with employer-sponsored plans, which could help fill gaps in the healthcare market.
The legislation passed by a voice vote, but Republicans can only afford to lose two votes on the bill.
That means Democrats are unlikely to be able to block it.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told reporters after the vote that he would support it, but it’s unclear how much of a boost that will be.
If Republicans manage to win support for the bill from Democrats, they will be able, potentially for the first time in years, to pass it.
The bill is expected to pass the Senate on Thursday.
