Republicans In Name Only (RINO) in the Senate brought President Trump’s attempt to fix the disastrous Obamacare law to a halt on Tuesday when they refused to vote on an outright repeal of the terrible legislation.
Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska surprised the Senate when they presented a united front against repeal-only legislation, but they just received terrifying news from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Conservatives across the country have been demanding McConnell hold an up or down vote on repealing the Democrats’ failed law so we can see who’s really for or against fixing things. Well, we’re finally going to get our wish, the Daily Mail reported, as McConnell said that he’s going to force a vote on it next week and call the bluffs of those opposing him.
Check it out:
Senators Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska announced Tuesday that they would refuse to support legislation repealing the Affordable Care Act with a two-year delay for a replacement to be devised.
With only 52 seats in the 100-member Senate, McConnell could afford only two defections.
But he said defiantly on the Senate floor on Wednesday that he will call their bluff.
‘As I announced last evening, after consulting with both the White House and our members, we have decided to hold the vote to open debate on Obamacare repeal early next week,’ McConnell announced.
‘This is the same legislation that a majority of the Senate voted to send to the president in 2015,’ he added. ‘Now, we thankfully have a president in office who will sign it. So we should send it to him.’
For the Senators to run on repealing Obamacare, only to turn around and oppose repealing it, is an exercise that’s going to enrage voters, and rightfully so. We didn’t give the GOP the House, Senate and the White House just to have them turn around and cave on one of the most important campaign issues there was.
These four RINOs should be terrified come re-election time if they vote against repeal again, since their constituents will undoubtedly primary them out of the Senate and replace them with people willing to get something done.
