Repealing Obamacare Without Replacement Fails in Senate With 45-55 Vote

On Wednesday, Senate Republicans voted against repealing Obamacare without a replacement in a 45-55 vote.

Seven Republican senators blocked the measure.

Voting against the measure:

Shelley Moore Capito (R., W.V.)

Susan Collins (R., Maine)

Dean Heller (R., Nev.)

John McCain (R., Ariz.)

Rob Portman (R., Ohio)

Lamar Alexander (R., Tenn.)

Lisa Murkowski (R., Alaska).

The Senate voted on the Obamacare Repeal and Reconciliation Act, which would repeal parts of Obamacare including the individual and employer mandates, taxes, and spending.

Already knew Collins, Murkowski, and McCain would vote against it - now we know the RINO list... The RNC should figure out a way to Primary all of them! Republicans were give the House, Senate, and Executive Branch in order to repeal this massive socialist wealth transfer scheme!

9:49 Actually, it is just the opposite. If you take the time to educate yourself and actually read a book or two, you would know that some of the most significant legislation and prosperity have happened when one party is in control of the executive branch and the other in charge of the legislative branch.

There is no such thing anymore of a R/D division as much as such a thing as a Trump/ GOP allied with Dems division.

Let's not play games. The GOP hates Trump and is allied with the Democrats to take him out of office and obstruct his every move.

To make America great again will takeaway the Congress and senate good old boy system and give power back to the people, and Congress is absolutely against all of this. Senate as well/ They would rather have Donald killed to protect this "church" as it were.We must protect our President in this endeavor.

This (Congress) is the enemy, and they need to be defined for when the SHTF.
