A consensus emerged among potential 2020 presidential candidates on Thursday: Obamacare repeal will literally kill thousands of people.
Democrats eyeing a 2020 presidential run agreed on one thing on Thursday: the House vote to repeal Obamacare will kill thousands of Americans.
There was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA):
This isn’t football. It’s not about scoring points. #AHCA will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die.
— Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) May 4, 2017
Hillary Clinton ally, Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-VA):

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT):
Donald Trump and Republicans just celebrated voting to let thousands of Americans die so that billionaires get tax breaks. Think about that. pic.twitter.com/hbOp7k2TQe

First-term Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT):
House GOP, I hope you slept well last night. Because after this vote, you will have the death of thousands of your conscience forever.
— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) May 4, 2017
And freshman Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA):
The Affordable Care Act saves lives. The GOP health care plan? This plan will destroy lives.
— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) May 4, 2017
If the consequences are so dire, these candidates should be asked why their colleagues in the House “gleefully broke into song when the bill passed” on Thursday.
Regardless of the Democratic death knells, the American Health Care Act (AHCA) now heads to the Senate, where it is expected to undergo significant revision over the next month or two.
