Trio of Republican senators McCain, Collins , Murkowski help vote down ‘skinny repeal’ of ObamaCare

Disgusting shame!

NYPost reports Republicans’ last-ditch effort to zap ObamaCare failed early Friday when three GOP senators joined Democrats to reject the so-called “skinny” repeal — in a vote marked by a dramatic nay from John McCain.

The Senate voted on the bill at about 1:30 a.m. just hours after it was released with the hope that it could be sent to the House and be further worked on in committee.

The defeat was the latest setback to President Trump’s promise to repeal President Obama’s signature legislative achievement.

The 51-49 vote was largely cast along party lines.

Along with McCain, who had returned to Washington from Arizona following a brain-cancer diagnosis, GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voted no, despite intense pressure from the White House.

  1. Can the republican elites please revoke the party cards from these sell-outs? I'm not sure they even can qualify as 'rinos' anymore...............

  2. This is why I thank God for blessing Johnny "Songbird" McShame with brain cancer, and pray that it is contagious so every one of his Koch-sucking Rove Republican buddies can soon join him in a warmer climate with his close friend Teddy "Swim, bitch" Kennedy. May they all soon burn in hell where they belong, along with every "Law Enforcement" officer that has enabled their treason for all these years.
