The reforming of the Obamacare has been one of the main arguments from President Donald Trump.  From the inception of his campaign to his presidential victory, President Trump has made this healthcare bill a main priority. It seems that all is efforts came to halt during last night’s vote to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Lead by Senator John McCain (who is battling a brain tumor), Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins, the Senate delivered the devastating blow to the Republicans and President Trump’s agenda. “I’ve stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote,” McCain said in a statement. “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. We must do the hard work our citizens expect of us and deserve.”

“This is clearly a disappointing moment,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. “Our constituents have suffered through an awful lot under Obamacare. We thought they deserved better. It’s why I and many of my colleagues did as we promised and voted to repeal this failed law. We told our constituents we would vote that way. And when the moment came, when the moment came, most of us did.”

“3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!” President Trump tweeted early this morning.

Both parties stand strong on their beliefs on how Obamacare will ultimately help the American people. This conclusive voting shows how much the government is truly divided in certain aspects of governing the country.
