Republicans have vowed to scrap Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, since it was ratified by former President Barack Obama in 2010.
Mr. McCain, who travelled from Arizona immediately after a surgery to remove a brain tumour last week, walked into the chamber at 1.29 am on Friday, and voted "no" with a thumbs down sign. But this morning, he reversed course and cast the deciding "no" vote, joining Republicans Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and quashed their party's hopes of undoing Obamacare. As soon as McCain joined Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski in saying "no" to the GOP's plan, Twitter freakin' lost it.
The failedrepeal means average premiums will continue to skyrocket, leaving people with few, if any, available health insurance options and facing penalties if they don't buy insurance, he said.

Vice President Mike Pence was awaiting to vote in case of a tie, as had happened in the past.

"They look like fools and are just wasting time ...", the USA president wrote.
