It Took Two Women With Courage And John McCain To Kill Obamacare Repeal
The Senate failed to pass a bill that was its only remaining effort to repeal Obamacare. The plan was to send the bill to the House where a replacement bill could be crafted in conference. A lot of pressure was put on the women senators to vote for the bill. Trump had his interior secretary warn the senator from Alaska that a no vote would lead to a loss of federal funds to Alaska. That did not work. The two woman senators stood their ground. They were eventually joined by John McCain who resisted efforts by the Vice President to vote for the phony healthcare bill. The real story is not about the heroism of the three senators who defeated the bill. It is about the lack of courage by the 48 Republican senators who voted for the bill. Its about time that they took their jobs more seriously. They were elected to serve our nation. The Donald is in business to destroy our democratic system of government. Its about time for the 48 weaklings in the Republican senate to put our national interest ahead of the Republican Party that The Donald views as an enabler of his personal power.
