All of the Democratic representatives and retiring Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen voted no on the bill.

CBS4 met up with her Thursday night in Miami Beach.

“This bill kicks 24 million people off their insurance. This bill discriminates against older Americans. This bill discriminates against people with pre-existing conditions,” she said. “It’s worse than Obamacare.”
