FINAL VOTE ON OBAMACARE REPEAL:




51 - NO!

49 - YES





McConnell And Trump Just Got Humiliated As Obamacare Repeal Dies On Senate Floor





Washington (CNN) The Senate has dealt a devastating setback to Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, defeating a GOP "skinny repeal" bill early Friday morning. 

 Sens. John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins joined with Democrats to oppose the measure, a major blow to President Donald Trump and the Republican congressional agenda.







To the Republicans who put country above party:  

Well done, and thank you!

I saw that McCain voted no to give guys like Sen Heller of Nevada cover to vote with conservatives.

That vote will haunt him back home in a state that becomes more progressive everyday and voted for HRC.

It was tough for Trump to try and intimidate McCain. There's not much to hold over the head of people with nothing to lose...

Electoral-Vote.com is reporting that McConnell was literally in tears after the repeal effort went down to defeat. So now we know what it takes to make a right-winger cry -- the heartbreaking thought of all those millions of poor people getting to keep their health insurance.

A narrow loss for the Republicans who were bloodthirsty to murder as many of their constituents as possible. On to cutting taxes for rich people massively and cutting services for poor people massively. Obamacare will have to be left to "fail" (via sabotage). There are many more ways they (the bloodthirsty Republicans) can do harm.

I see at TPM that on Trump's favorite show the mouthbreathers were all upset that Democratic senators were happy at the outcome. Good.

but trump has the attention span of a gnat and he has the mooch to amuse him for the next few weeks so he's probably already moved on.

A potty-mouth for WH communications director?

So just throw out everything that your parents, mentors and teachers ever tried to teach and instill in you as to how to be a good citizen?

We would be better off with my eleven and one half year-old Golden Retriever as our president. He is a priest, as was his spirit-grandfather, Duffy, the magical, Scottish shepherd from Santa Ysabel. I could serve as a combination chief-of-staff and principal adviser to William the Snuggler.

I have no problem with atheists, either radical or temperate. But what we need is a leader who comes from a spiritual place, or at the least a moral perspective.

I call it being holy.

Trump is not holy.

Trump calls it #MAGA. LMAO!

My 8 year old grandson has more sense, empathy, and self awareness than does Trump and many who advise him.

America is in decline, following the trajectory of many great nations of antiquity as well as the modern era.

Trump and his administration are greasing the rails and the train is building up steam. The method to their madness is clear. The question is are our institutions strong enough to withstand Trump's onslaught.

RN: "The question is are our institutions strong enough to withstand Trump's onslaught."

Some pundits say they are; others say Trump's already wrecked them beyond repair.

Problem is now with the certain collapse of obmacare hundreds of millions of people will no longer have healthcare and the repugs can point the blame toward the dems while the dems will point to the repugs. As chuckie shumler and madam botox say, hundreds of millions will die but they are to blame.

Looks like Little Anthony Scary-Mouth is about to be cuck-olded quite soon.

I have no respect for a man who neglects to care for his wife.
