BREAKING: Senate GOP Can’t Even Pass Obamacare REPEAL ONLY Obamacare Bill
In 2015 the Republican Senate voted to repeal most of the failed Obamacare law.
The bill was vetoed by President Obama.
These liars in Congress several times to repeal Obamacare when Obama was president.
Last night the GOP Senate failed to pass a repeal and replace option for Obamacare.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s new proposal for a straight repeal of Obamacare appears to already be dead on arrival.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell then moved toward a full repeal of Obamacare, leaving Congress two years to create a replacement–it’s dead.
Turncoats Susan Collins and Shelly Moore Capito announced they will not vote for a repeal only bill.
GOP Senators Susan Collins, Shelley Moore Capito and Lisa Murkowski said Tuesday they’ll oppose a repeal of the Affordable Care Act. McConnell said late Monday the Senate would vote on a repeal with a two-year delay to give Congress time to agree on a replacement, but he could afford to lose no more than two Republican votes to advance the measure.
Repealing the law now and then hoping for a replacement “would create great anxiety for individuals who rely on the ACA,” Collins of Maine told reporters in Washington. “I believe it would cause the insurance markets to go into turmoil.” She said she would oppose bringing a repeal bill up for debate.
Capito of West Virginia said she would refuse to take up a repeal plan without an adequate replacement. “I did not come to Washington to hurt people,” she said in a statement.
Murkowski of Alaska also said she wouldn’t vote to take up a repeal-alone measure.
President Trump fired off a tweet Monday night telling Republican to ‘just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now and work on a new healthcare plan that will start from a clean slate.’
Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!

GOP House members are boiling over in anger after the Senate failed to secure the votes needed to pass the healthcare bill.
Washington Examiner reports:
House Republicans on Tuesday were seething with anger over the Senate GOP’s late Monday decision to pull the plug on a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Lawmakers leaving the House GOP’s weekly conference meeting said feelings of exasperation and anger have set in, now that the Senate has dropped plans to vote on an Obamacare replacement bill this month.
“There is a lot of frustration, borderline anger I guess, at what really has to be described as some level of incompetence to be able to get together and get something done,” Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., who heads the conservative Republican Study Committee, told the Washington Examiner.
