Senate Vote On Clean ACA Repeal Falls Flat

Senate Vote On Clean ACA Repeal Falls Flat

Yesterday, 50 Senators and Vice President Pence as the 51st vote pulled a fast one on the public by making a key procedural vote to move forward on a "mystery bill" meant to repeal the Affordable Care Act ( ACA ).

President Donald Trump has declined to guarantee payments, and has floated the idea of letting the law fail.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has taken comfort in the defeat in the Senate of a Republican-pushed measure aimed at scaling back, or partially repealing, former President Back Obama's Affordable Care Act. "Repeal and replace" has been their mantra. "Our lives depend on it, and our senators promised to protect us - now we promise to make sure their constituents know how they voted". Lack of health insurance is a major barrier to seeking out care and receiving necessary treatments.

As votes were being cast, all eyes were on Sen. "It's about the 20 million Americans and counting who've gained the security and peace of mind of health insurance and the tens of millions more who benefited from upgrades like free preventive care, such as mammograms and vaccines and improvements in the quality of care in hospitals that have averted more than 100,000 deaths so far".

While many Americans across the country enjoy the traditional summer respite, there's no slowing down for members of Congress who face another packed week of hearings, meetings, votes and negotiations.

Rep. Mo Brooks says the "failure" of the GOP health care overhaul is ultimately Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's responsibility. "The current proposals are simply unacceptable as written, and any attempts to repeal the ACA (Affordable Care Act) without a concurrent replacement is also unacceptable", he said in a July 25 statement.

Unable to pass even a so-called "skinny repeal", it was unclear if Senate Republicans could advance any health bill despite seven years of promises to repeal "Obamacare".

McConnell put the health bill on hold and announced that the Senate would move onto other legislation next week.
