Senate Republicans are running out of options to use for ObamaCare repeal, and momentum for a bare-bones ObamaCare repeal plan is growing.

The GOP's failure to repeal and replace Obamacare since becoming the majority party has been described as an abject embarrassment for many Republican lawmakers, as well as President Trump. Vice President Mike Pence cast the 51st and tie-breaking vote.

The amendment failed by a 45-55 margin, with seven Republican senators voting against it: Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine, Dean Heller of Nevada, John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Rob Portman of Ohio. Senators Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted against.

"The big question is will they be able to pass anything?" said Larry Jacobs, a professor at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

Republicans attempted to pass the repeal bill through special budget rules - limiting debate to 20 hours and preventing a filibuster from Democrats.

The path forward for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) isn't clear, but the defeat of another bill doesn't mean the Affordable Care Act is safe. The Hill reported that he stressed he would not vote the repeal bill into law and urged both sides to work together on health care reform.


After a key health care vote, Senate Republicans have officially begun the debate process on a plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

To anybody tuning in to C-Span this week, the Senate health care debate might seem like a spirited, if somewhat convoluted, discussion about the Affordable Care Act.

"As this vote shows, inaction is not an option, and now the legislative process can move forward as meant to produce a bill that lowers costs and increases options for all Americans".

"This is the beginning of the end for the disaster known as Obamacare", Trump said. Indeed, in a bit of a surprise, today's bill received two more Republican votes than yesterday's bill - which was itself depraved.

The Senate is moving ahead with its efforts to overhaul the USA healthcare system, in what is shaping up to be a more moderate, "skinnier" attempt at repealing certain provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Its main proposal is to remove individual and employer mandates but it will also allow the senate to establish a conference with the house of representatives on a replacement Bill, a move that may give the senate more time.
