House Republicans and President Donald Trump are planning on having a celebration at the White House, and a Bud Light or two, if they pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare on Thursday afternoon.
Trump has apparently delayed his plans to travel to New York City by a few hours, and the White House has sent transportation to the Capitol so that House Republicans may quickly dash off to a party at the White House.

Trump himself confirmed that House Republicans would head to the White House for a press conference if the bill passes.
If victorious, Republicans will be having a big press conference at the beautiful Rose Garden of the White House immediately after vote!

Cases upon cases of beer just rolled into the Capitol on a cart covered in a sheet. Spotted Bud Light peeking out from the sheet
