Schumer: Obamacare Repeal Failure 'An Amazing Moment'

The Lie and Tragedies of Obamacare

"Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW!"

McCain, 80, joined Republican colleagues Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME in voting against the so-called "skinny repeal", officially titled the Health Care Freedom Act.

Choking up on the Senate floor after the final repeal effort was shot down, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said: "It's time to move on". "This is a disappointment - a disappointment indeed".

Schumer called that approach "sabotage", and said he hopes Republicans in the House and Senate "will turn a deaf ear on that". "We are not celebrating; we are relieved", he says.

"We gotta get better at telling people what we believe, why we believe it, and then persuading them that it's right for the country", Gowdy explained.

He added: "Obamacare wasn't ideal". This country - this big, boisterous, brawling, intemperate, restless, striving, daring, beautiful, bountiful, brave, good and magnificent country - needs us to help it thrive.

Schumer suggested the two sides could find consensus on measures aimed at shoring up Obamacare, saying, "Nobody has said Obamacare is ideal".

Having arrived back to Washington DC from his Arizona hospital bed on Tuesday, it initially appeared McCain was not going to take the advice he eloquently - if haltingly - gave on the Senate floor. She also asked House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., to allow lawmakers in committee to discuss potential reforms to improve US healthcare.

Trump, who never held elected office before winning the presidency, has repeatedly expressed frustration with the pace of policy. The 48 Republicans who voted for repeal - even those who said they were holding their noses - did so because they thought they couldget away with it. Polls show Americans pretty much hate the notion of repeal as presented to them in the various GOP proposals.

But at Pelosi's news conference, Rep.

"I sadly feel a great many Americans will feel betrayed, that they were lied to, and that sentiment will not be unjustified", said Sen. "I want us to try to get back to how we can restart, because the work is not done", Murkowski told NBC News.

Whether repeal of the Affordable Care Act is really, most sincerely dead, as the Wicked Witch in the Wizard of Oz was pronounced, remains to be seen.

"Tensions were high; people had been up late into the night".

The specific contents of that legislation were not delivered in detail to the Senate until 10 p.m. Thursday.

The premise behind the renewed effort in the House to pass a bill was always that: the Senate will fix whatever we do, so don't worry about the details of what's in ours. It would have also suspended a tax on medical devices and denied federal payments to Planned Parenthood for a year.

The slimmed-down version of the Senate bill - The Health Care Freedom Act, which the White House refers to as the "freedom bill" - included an end to key elements of the health law. McCain also did the absolute bare minimum and voted against the bill in the end, after months of hedging on his stances about a repeal effort.
