When RINO John McCain wins, America loses.
Dealing a serious blow to President Donald Trump’s agenda, the Senate early Friday rejected a measure to repeal parts of former President Barack Obama’s health care law after a night of high suspense in the U.S. Capitol.
Unable to pass even a so-called “skinny repeal,” it was unclear if Senate Republicans could advance any health bill despite seven years of promises to repeal “Obamacare.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky put the health bill on hold and announced that the Senate would move onto other legislation next week.
President Trump responded on Twitter: “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!”
A key vote to defeat the measure was cast by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
Two other Republicans — Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine — joined McCain and all Democrats to reject the amendment.
The amendment was a last resort for Senate Republicans to pass something — anything — to trigger negotiations with the House.
