Is Trumpcare dead? Or is it just on life support?
Well, tonight it lost 2 more votes - Jerry Moran and Mike Lee. So now McConnell has 48 votes, max.
Mike Lee's statement
It should be noted that these 2 Senators are voting "no" because the bill isn't cruel enough, not because they want their constituents to have better coverage.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend, though, right?
UPDATE: Trump just tweeted this. I'm pretty sure he doesn't understand the two ideas (Repeal and Dems joining in) are mutually exclusive.
John McCain's statement:
Turtle McConnell just issued a statement as well
Apparently plan 4.0 is to repeal and delay replacement for 2 years.
The bill McConnell wants to breathe life into is one that passed in 2015 when a veto was a certainty. It takes health insurance away from 32 million people -- more than Obamacare covered -- and will cause premiums to double for everyone, even employers.
Good luck with that.
Now is the time for Democrats to bring forward their ideas to make the Affordable Care Act stronger.
