‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’: Watch House Democrats Taunt Republicans as Health Care Passes
By a razor-thin 217-213 margin the House voted Thursday to repeal Obamacare and pass the American Health Care Act.
After the vote, a chant broke out on the House Floor:
Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na
Hey Hey Hey
The chant, of course, was from “Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” by Steam — oft heard at sporting events.
According to multiple reporters on Twitter, the chant did not come from House Republicans celebrating the bill passage, but from Democrats signaling their belief that the vote will help cost the republicans their seats in the midterms.
