A Third Defeat for Trump's Health Plans in the Senate

GOP's Base Not Ready to Give Up Fight Against'Obamacare

The Senate's effort to repeal and replace Obamacare collapsed early Friday morning, and President Trump has already replied that he is ready to "let Obamacare implode" and then reopen negotiations.

Antonia Ferrier, a spokeswoman for Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican who is the Senate majority leader, declined to comment on Trump's posts.

The movement to repeal and replace the ACA has been in the works for almost 7 years since the law was put in place to begin with. The process allows lawmakers to vote on critical pieces of the health law without giving Democrats a chance to filibuster. "And if Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellSunday Show Preview: Washington recovers from healthcare fallout in the Senate These 5 House Republicans are ripping their Senate colleagues over healthcare Trump: Republicans "look like fools" if they don't kill Senate filibuster MORE can not get the job done on this, how is he going to get the job done on the rest of President Trump's agenda over the next three-and-a-half years?" While aides fought with one another, Trump's signature promise to repeal and replace Barack Obama's health care program went down in flames. Voting for a bill you secretly hope will fail is a long-standing Washington tradition, but voting for a bill you openly hope will fail might have been a bridge too far.

Kasich said the GOP "looked over the cliff" and saw "people were going to be hurt and pulled back".

House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement that "cutting taxes for middle class families and fixing our broken tax code" is at the top of his list when Congress returns from its August recess. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate's Law and complete Healthcare. "And three senators chose not to vote with us, and all the Democrats sat on their hands".

If the law is not changed, the marketplaces will be largely stable in most parts of the country, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. But historically, and facing increasingly narrow elections that can flip control of the Senate every few years, most senators have opposed permanently jettisoning the rule that allows the minority party to indefinitely obstruct something that has majority support.

4 bodies found at wreckage of small plane in Hawaii
The bodies were found in the Waianae mountains near Kunia, near the Palikea and Pohakea trails. Coast Guard helicopter saw the wreckage during a search Saturday, the newspaper said.

But some Republicans including McCain blasted the bill as bad policy, and grew nervous that the House of Representatives might turn around and pass the bill instead of going to conference with the Senate.

McCain's vote, which gave rise to so much glee from Senate Democrats, torpedoed President Trump's campaign promise to repeal Obamacare, depriving the president of a much-wanted major legislative victory.

McCain, who was recently diagnosed with glioblastoma, traveled to the Senate in order to participate in the vote less than two weeks after having surgery to remove a brain tumor.

McCain's arrival tied the vote and Vice President Mike Pence broke a tie roll call with a vote to proceed with the bill. Two women make up 40 percent of all female Republican senators. "Then bring it to the floor for amendment and debate, and see if we can pass something that will be imperfect, full of compromises, and not very pleasing to implacable partisans on either side, but that might provide workable solutions to problems Americans are struggling with today".

Sen. Susan Collins of ME, another of the three Republicans to vote against the GOP plan (Alaska's Lisa Murkowski was the other), said she is pleased that Sen.

"I believe @TGowdySC is more upset over the Senate's vote than our flights being canceled". This plan was rejected on Wednesday, July 26.
