Again, efforts by Donald Trump and Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare failed.

In a devastating setback, 3 Republican Senators, John McCain, Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins joined with Democrats to oppose the measure.

Speaking after the vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell looked stunned and lamented the vote and the inability of the GOP to fulfill their long-term campaign pledge. "This is clearly a disappointing moment. 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. It's time to move on," he said.


President Trump in an early morning tweet reacted to the Senate vote, saying "3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!"
