Just as I’ve told you a couple of days ago, the Republican (read RINO) healthcare bill is short on votes and today things just got worse (or better, depending on how you stay regarding Obamacare):

Following the announcements of Senators Mike Lee (REP Utah) and Jerry Moran (REP Kansas) regarding their refusal to endorse/support the GOP bill aimed at repealing/replacing ACA/Obamacare, the Republican effort to change healthcare legislation in the Senate is now blocked, dead in the water and the whole nine yards. And that means Obamacare is still the law of the land. However, that’s not a very bad thing after all, since Democrats and dear leader Barry own it lock stock and barrel. And yes, Obamacare is failing miserably as we speak.
Senator Moran released a brief statement about his decision:
“This closed-door process has yielded the [bill], which fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act or address healthcare’s rising costs. For the same reasons I could not support the previous version of this bill, I cannot support this one,”
Obviously, the new healthcare bill dubbed Obamacare lite which is supported by RINOs like Mitch McConell is nowhere near conservative enough:
In addition to not repealing all of the Obamacare taxes, it doesn’t go far enough in lowering premiums for middle class families; nor does it create enough free space from the most costly Obamacare regulations,”
argued the Senator from Utah. Republicans have a relatively slim majority in the Senate, owning 52 seats, but Rand Paul and Susan Collins (from Maine) already announced they’ll vote no, leaving Mitch McConnel without enough support to bring Obamacare Lite to the Senate’s floor.
The DEMs pushed this mess on America without a single Republican voting for it, and in the dead of night. They own it and will continue to own it. I take great pleasure this so-called new healthcare bill is dead. ACA is an epic failure and this disaster is owned completely by the Democrats and Obama. Also, this move may cost Mitch McConell his career, and that’s also great, as he’s a quintessential RINO.
