Will Republicans ever repeal Obamacare? Wicker hopes 'in a day or two'

19 Juillet 2017

McConnell can only lose two senators' support in order to advance the legislation.

President Donald Trump expressed his frustration with a slow progress on the healthcare measure saying on Twitter the new legislation should follow the inevitable failure of the ACA.

"Let Obamacare fail; it'll be a lot easier", Trump told reporters on Tuesday. Their votes mirrored the rest of the Ohio congressional delegation: all Democrats opposed repealing the law and all Republicans supported it.

Collins called for hearings to examine ways to fix Obamacare, a position Democrats welcome, and one that is increasingly being embraced by other Republicans such as Sen.

Doctors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center said that when McConnell arrived at the facility his white-vote count had fallen below fifty and he had gone into shock.

Further, Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas tells NPR's Susan Davis, there are probably "five or six" Republicans in total who are against the motion.

On Tuesday, Moran said the repeal vote "should be followed by an open legislative process to craft healthcare policy that will provide greater personal choice, protections for pre-existing conditions, increased access and lower overall costs for Kansans". "You know, everybody has their own reason".

McConnell, R-Ky., needs to start Senate debate on the health care bill passed by the House and then amend it to become a straight repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

The bill the male senators wrote would have defunded Planned Parenthood for a year - a proposal that Ms Murkowski and Ms Collins took issue with - as well as dramatically cut Medicaid, a healthcare programme for low-income Americans that pays for nearly half of all births in the US. A number of Republicans announced they would not support the bill in its current form when the legislation was announced. It was the second time McConnell had to delay a vote; the first time he simply lacked enough GOP votes to proceed.

"We need to find where the Senate is, and move forward", Sen. This essentially changed the rules in the Senate and busted the 60-vote threshold down to a simple majority of 51 votes for presidential nominees only.
