WASHINGTON – Republican Senate leaders annonced within the past hour, there will be no vote this week on the latest bill to repeal Obamacare this week. The no vote assures Americans that Trumpcare is not in the horizon in the immediate future.
Republicans have rallied against the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, for the past seven years. Even with control of both houses of Congress and a Republican in the White House, the GOP has proven it is a party in disarray when it comes to governing.
The decision came today at a luncheon because they realized the bill would go down in defeat after Sen. Susan Collins (R – Maine) informed the press last night she would vote no on the bill. Two other Republicans, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) stated their opposition to the bill.
American Indians feared the passing of the legislation would take away health benefits in Indian Country.
