Congress has failed again to repeal ObamaCare. At least the longer this goes on, the more obvious it becomes who needs to lose their seats as soon as possible. Here are those Republicans showing their true colors…
Republican Senators John McCain, Shelley Moore Capito, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Rob Portman, Lamar Alexander, and Dean Heller all voted “no” on the straight repeal of Obamacare and defund of Planned Parenthood. The failed amendment also included a ban of federal funding of abortion.
All of those senators except for Collins voted “yes” on this bill back in 2015, when it was obvious President Obama would veto it.
Today’s vote doesn’t mean that the Senate still won’t end up repealing (and possibly replacing) Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood. The process of Senate debate over the AHCA – and introductions of various amendments to it – will carry on throughout the week.
However, today’s vote showed which Republicans flip-flopped on their opposition to Obamacare.
