President Trump: Republican Senators 'Look Like Fools' for Losing Health Care Vote

US Senate shoots down Bill repealing Obamacare

Despite repeated failures, President Donald Trump will not put his plan to pass health care legislation to rest.

Each has faced aggressive arm-twisting and callouts by Trump, scare tactics from his cabinet, even threats of violence from a Republican congressman, Blake Farenthold, who said he would challenge "some female senators" to a duel if they were men rather than women, because they were blocking health care reform. "But I'm optimistic they're going to find a way to do something".

After the bill failed to pass, McConnell took to the floor and acknowledged that the plan to repeal Obamacare had been defeated, saying "It's time to move on". John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins - killed the effort by voting against it.

The Republican leadership and the White House brought enormous pressure on Senators to fall in line.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, insisted Friday that the fight to repeal and replace Obamacare is "not over". "They ought to sit down and come up with a viable legislative, doable tax reform". "They look like fools and are just wasting time", Trump tweeted Saturday.

Three republicans sided with democrats to vote down what many considered to be the last and final attempt to repeal former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare legislation.

"The only way we get major things done in America, in the Congress and particular in the Senate is bipartisan", Schumer said. Jeff Flake. "It shouldn't be like this". On health care, the pair argued that the various plans offered threatened to adversely impact millions of American families on Medicaid. We must now return to the correct way of legislating and send the bill back to committee, hold hearings, receive input from both sides of aisle, heed the recommendations of nation's governors, and produce a bill that finally delivers affordable health care for the American people. It makes you more motivated to consider it. Republicans took over the House after the 2010 election and the Senate after the 2014 election and this year the presidency. Dean Heller, or a congressional run-said the health care vote didn't affect his decision-making.

But now they have all branches and now repeal and replace had political consequences.

Brooks also had words for Trump, warning the president that he should keep his campaign promises and stop attacking his attorney general - which he had earlier called a "public waterboarding".

OK, so... you get the point. On Friday, he unleashed a series of tweets blaming "3 Republicans and 48 Democrats" in the Senate who "let the American people down".

"And he asked us to go back to regular order, to bring back the Senate that some of us who were here for a while remember".

"I regret that we're here", McConnell said.

Alabama's midsummer GOP primary, notes CNN, has become a proxy battle over the direction of the Republican Party. Pence's vote was not needed, however, as any chance of Republicans actually doing what they promised for seven years, seemed to fade entirely.

That was followed up by a threatening phone call later the same day from Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke who relayed a message from the president: If Murkowski continued to defy the party, Alaska's future with the administration would be in jeopardy.
