Senate Republicans Surrender, Won’t Vote On Obamacare Repeal Bill
After promising to several times to vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare, Senate Republicans announced they were canceling their vote.
Despite the numerous promises that they had enough votes, the majority party folded its cards because they lost votes from Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine.
The Senate Republicans refused to allow time for a debate or for the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to do a thorough analysis of the bill.
The CBO did say on Sept. 24 that millions of Americans would lose their health insurance if Graham-Cassidy were passed.
