With the House of Representatives already having voted overwhelmingly to repeal and replace Obama’s Health Care Rationing and Denial programs it remains to be seen if the members of the Republican held, U.S. Senate can get out of their own way and do what they have been asked to do,
Since the legislation was passed in the dark, with deals being made and none of the Democrats who voted for it bothered to read it while it never received a Republican vote.
Democrats still fail to admit, that Obama’s albatross was never affordable, the deductibles were too high and forced compliance for business led to greater unemployment.
This is all well and good, as a savvy group of voters would not take another chance with another socialist, Hillary Clinton, which made President Trump’s victory that much more important.
In fact, the House of Representatives had voted to repeal it 50 times. (Source)
Pardon me if I’m coming off sounding extremely jaded, but I believe that with a number of exceptions most members of Congress could care less about the Health of Senator John Mc.Cain.
He has served his country in combat and as a legislator long enough and it’s time for him to retire.

All 48 Democrats and two Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, voted no.
These two dowagers must have primary challenges which will likely defeat both of them.
The vote was held open while senators waited for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, to arrive on the Senate floor.
The vote begins as much as 20 hours of debate on the House-passed health care bill, the American Health Care Act, and a new bill will be swapped in its place.
The Congressional Budget Office estimated that 23 million more people would be uninsured by 2026 under the House-passed bill.

“We can’t let this moment slip by,” McConnell said in a floor speech before the vote began.
“We’ve talked about this too long. We’ve wrestled with the issues, we’ve watched the consequences of the status quo. The people who sent us here expect us to begin this debate, to have the courage to tackle a tough issue.”
“Turn back,” Schumer urged the GOP. “We want to work with you.
Stop the cameras!
We know the Affordable Care Act is not perfect but we also know what you propose is much worse. We can work together to improve healthcare in our country.
Turn back now before it’s too late.”
