There is simply no excuse other than to say that after seven years of lying to the American people about the repeal and replace of the failed Affordable Care Act, that for a legislative body refused to express and act on the will of the voter, it is business as usual.
Because of their disdain for President Trump which reflects their disdain for we, the People and the fact that their hearts until this day was never into repealing and replacing Obamacare, the so-called Skinny Bill. Republicans and their Marxist counterparts on the left failed the nation AGAIN.
So yeah, damned right, President Trump is angry, damned right and he is not alone.
Washington Free Beacon by David Rutz
Three Republicans and all 48 Democrats and Independents voted down the stripped-down repeal measure of Obamacare that some Republican senators didn’t even want to become law, but rather wanted to continue the legislative process to improve the bill. The unusual scene played out around 1:30 A.M. on Capitol Hill.
Trump had called via Twitter over recent weeks for Republicans to “step up to the plate” and keep their promise to repeal Obamacare, writing repeatedly that it was up to them to get it done.
After another setback to this agenda Friday, Trump wrote, “3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!”

RINO Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) along with the comrades on the left did not disappoint when they voted NO.

Taking into account that Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell never intended to repeal Obamacare from the start, the decision to hold out until the return of McCain makes perfect sense. For the GOPe, last night was mission accomplished so now let’s move on.
