Skip to comments.LIVE: Voting on clean repeal RIGHT NOW
Posted on 07/26/2017 12:51:07 PM PDT by GIdget2004
Democrats waived the point of order, so only 50 votes are needed, not 60. They are that convinced that it will fail.

WHERE IS PENCE???
Not defending her.. What I am saying is the rest votes yes and ran on repealing it and have now shown on the record they are liars and never had any intentions of repealing it.
So we now have our targets. Find good candidates to primary them and start the ball rolling.
THEY HAVE BEEN LYING FOR YEARS!!
FRICKEN YEARS!!! :/
The VP only votes to break a tie in the Senate.
“The Republicans will never be trusted again.”
Stopped about a decade ago (probably longer). They are the ruling elite and we are the great unwashed.
If we don’t start hitting the pavement, speaking out, we loose. And our kids and grands really get hosed.
In the socialist utopian, they seem hell bent on enforcing, there is no middle class. They will turn the American Constitution 180 degrees.
inal count: 7 Republicans vote against repeal-only
Of course Heller will probably just move his office to K Street.
I had heard 50 votes...hoped the 51 was wrong...
Kabuki fan dance...51 and the 7 are all safe for a few years with exception of Heller.
Trump will get rid of Obamacare but not through a repeal.
Once he has the SCOTUS well packed a case will be brought against Obamacare and Roberts will not be able to save it.
His SCOTUS appointments will bring the end of the monstrosity that is Obamacare.
McCain did the same to Bush. Caused massive loss on conservative issues. Scuttled permanent tax cuts, forcing the sunset at 10 years. Opened the door to obama’s class warfare and two terms. I will open my best bottle of bourbon when he’s gone from the senate.
You are so absolutely right.
Well said...post of the evening!
Summed it up!
Pretty sure if we loose they get hoosed.../s
No money to the GOP, period.
Not one thin dime.
Not one red cent.
All these years they are keeping their promise.
When is Trump’s signing ceremony?
Trump has proven (most recently with the Tranny military debacle) that he is willing to do the right thing though it may be tough to do politically. If it comes to it I think he’ll kill the subsidies and remove all of the exceptions which should kill this thing off before his term is out.
Actually there are 97 other Senators. If at least 51 of them (i.e. 49 GOP and 48 Dems) decide that this financial nightmare called ObamaCare must continue then it will. In the meantime the financial health and physical health of tens of millions of Americans are going to be destroyed along with the fiscal health of local, state, and federal levels of government as Medicaid & other programs do their damage.
Seven GOP Senators Break Biggest Promise in Modern Politics
July 26, 2017
Atlanta, GA Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to Senate Republicans failure to pass a partial repeal of ObamaCare the Senate passed in 2015.
Today, seven Republican Senators betrayed their constituents and the American people by breaking what is arguably the biggest political promise in modern American politics, and refusing to vote to repeal Obamacare. For the last four election cycles, Republican candidates have promised to repeal Barack Obamas signature legislation and as a result, have increasingly been granted more power in Washington by the American people. Now, Republicans are completely in charge and should find it easy to keep this critical promise that lifted them to power. However, Senators Capito, Heller, McCain, Portman, Alexander, and Murkowski should be ashamed for having flip-flopped and voting against repealing Obamacare, just 18 months after they voted to send virtually the same exact legislation to President Barack Obamas desk. And the seventh, Susan Collins, seems more concerned with critiquing the looks of House members or the sanity of the president than providing relief to the American people from rising costs and deteriorating quality of care under Obamacare. This is precisely the reason President Trump was elected. It is precisely the reason Congress has an approval rating worse than cockroaches. And it is precisely why the American people voted to drain the swamp in 2016. Tea Party Patriots will never give up the fight to fully repeal Obamacare and restore health care freedom to the American people. We call on President Trump to take action to end the congressional exemption from Obamacare so that senators, their families, and theirs staffs are forced to experience the same hardships that they refuse to lift from the American people. Perhaps if they were forced to live under the law that was unfavorably imposed on the American people, they will finally have the motivation to repeal Obamacare once and for all.Seven GOP Senators Break Biggest Promise in Modern Politics
We must primary these RINO’s in the spring of 2018.... 8 months from now if I’m correct for most states.
I don’t think that any of the 7 quislings are up for reelection in the 2018 cycle but there are plenty of Dems to target, including Joe Manchin who allowed Obama to gut the coal industry in West Virginia and who has backed Obamacare. The republicans need to gain 8 seats to have a sufficient buffer to deal with the likes of Collins, Murkowski and Portman.
If we dont start hitting the pavement, speaking out, we loose. And our kids and grands really get hosed.
We do need to become more activist and support Trump in every way we can. But I think that attempting to change/reform the GOP is futile.
The culture in the party is one that does not, and will never, support conservative interests and principles. The GOP talks conservative when they need to, so they can harvest the votes of those wanting to believe that someone will represent them in congress. This is false hope in my opinion as the GOP is nothing more than a bunch of liars and deceivers.
The only realistic path we have is a new political party in my humble opinion. The GOP has burnt us too many times to ever be trusted again. Our kids and grands deserve a better party.
