If they worked with Democrats to fix what ails Obamacare, they would ultimately produce a moment equivalent to the creation of Social Security and Medicare. "I regret that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failures of Obamacare will not be successful".
Regardless, SMcConnell insisted that there will be a vote next Tuesday on a motion to proceed to a vote on a health care bill - despite no one seeming to know which bill they will be voting on. We can not keep the commitment we made to the American people to repeal or replace Obamacare unless we get on the bill. The agency found that, like a prior Senate version, the latest bill would increase the number of uninsured Americans by 22 million by 2026. But the Republican plan is so stingy, the individual insurance market would not provide reasonable options to low-income and older people.

Under the plan, the ACA, popularly known as Obamacare, would be repealed after a two-year transition period during which time senators would come up with a compromise plan to replace it, a balance that has been impossible to strike so far.
For Republicans, that vote was a political two-fer: it delivered a dramatic confrontation with the Obama White House and it proved to voters Republicans were serious about delivering on their promise to end Obamacare.
