Seven Republicans including Sen. John McCain voted against the Obamacare repeal on Wednesday.
Senators Dean Heller, John McCain, Shelly Capito, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski all voted no to Sen. Mitch McConnell’s proposed repeal. What makes it confusing is McCain had voted last night in the YEAs and then turns around this afternoon and votes NAY.
I think his brain cancer has kicked in and he should never have come back if he was going to show this confusion.
All Republicans voting against the repeal voted for it while Barack Obama was in office.

Senate Republicans have been delivered another blow after failing to secure a simple majority of 51 votes on the 2015 “clean repeal” of the Affordable Care Act with a two-year implementation delay.
Moderate Republicans had voiced opposition to the strategy and were given an early indication of its failure with Republican Senators Heller, Capito, Collins and McCain voting no.
Senators voted Tuesday in favor on a motion to proceed with debate on the Senate’s health care plan to effectively repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. On Tuesday night, the Senate Republican plan to repeal and replace the health care law failed on a procedural vote.
- The 2015 ACA repeal with two-year implementation delay does not pass as Senate Republicans fail to get a simple majority of 51 “yes” votes
- Heller, Capito, Collins and McCain deliver “no” votes to repeal plan, all four Senators voted “yes” back in 2015
There was never a plan to replace Obamacare. The repeal attempts were nothing shy of political grandstanding.
The GOP knew Obama would veto any attempt to repeal and the GOP thought Hillary would get elected. If the GOP fails to repeal/replace Obamacare, it will go down as one of the largest political fails in US history and will be used as ammunition by the left in 2018 and 2020.
Before any GOP Senator thinks they are safe, think about this… up until about 8:30 pm on election night, Hillary Clinton was thought to have had a 99% chance of winning. The people will speak.
If this was possible, Trump needs to use his executive order to remove the exemption for the Senate and House and require that they all use the same insurance as the rest of America and then we will see how fast they can work together, both left and right and replace and repeal “Failing Obamacare.”
