McConnell abandons Obamacare 'repeal and replace' after GOP defections..Goes for Repeal Only!

It's about time and what they promised! 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell late Monday announced he was abandoning efforts to pass a bill to "repeal and replace" Obamacare and said he would instead push a bill to fully repeal the law and give Congress two years to figure out a replacement.

He announced that major shift in strategy after GOP support for a repeal-and-replace strategy collapsed in the Senate.

McConnell, R-Ky., said he would take up a House health bill that passed the lower chamber in May, but with the first amendment being a 2015 repeal bill that gutted Obamacare.

"Regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful," he said in a statement.

Trump and leading conservatives in both houses of Congress had called for a clean Obamacare repeal bill after it became clear the Senate's latest attempt to partially repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's healthcare law did not have the votes to pass. Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Jerry Moran, R-Kan., were the two key defections.

Just before that announcement,President Trump tweeted out that the GOP "should just REPEAL failing Obamacare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!"

Yes! This bit of news gives me more hope. That is exactly what should have been done from the git-go.

When that Obamanation is repealed then I sincerely hope that the demented democrats will get on board and finally start doing the jobs they were elected to perform and help form a truly Bi-partisan bill that is solid and affordable for every single American,  regardless of Age, Income and Sex. One that we all can embrace!

And might I add, one, that every single Senator, Congress person and Federal employee will also have to abide by !

That is something we all must insist on! What is good for the people is perfectly good for the leadership as well! NO more special alternatives for any of them!

3 Republican Senators REFUSE to lift the MASSIVE healthcare tax!  Susan Collins, Shelley Moore Capito, & Lisa Murkowski.

Here are the phone numbers for Portman and Capito and Collins. Let them know they made a promise. (202)224-3353 (202)224-6472 (202)224-2523

Dems:"ObamaCare is great!

Nothing wrong with it" Trump:"I'll let it fail"

Dems:"He wants us to die!!" I thought you said it was fine?
