Republicans have one last chance to keep faith with their voters when another ObamaCare repeal vote comes up in the Senate just before the September 30 deadline. After that Saturday, Congress can no longer use the reconciliation process to avoid a Democratic filibuster.
Conservatives want Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to resign his position and make way for a more effective leader, according to a poll by FedUp PAC.
More than 97% said that McConnell needs to be replaced by “someone who will fulfill Republican campaign promises.” Only about 2% agreed with McConnell that President Trump is demonstrating “excessive expectations.”
Some would like to attribute the collapse of the Senate’s Obamacare efforts to the perfidy of three Senators: Senators John McCain of Arizona, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine, two of whom (McCain and Murkowski) campaigned on Obamacare repeal and had voted for the GOP’s last-ditch bill in the past.
Yesterday, the Senate Republicans failed to pass the Obamacare repeal and replace package that was seen by many as the last-ditch plan to fulfill the Republican establishment’s promise to repeal Obamacare “root and branch.”
