President Donald Trump signaled disappointment that the Senate failed to pass an Obamacare repeal, after hours of failed Republican attempts to keep their promise to the American people.
“3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down,” he wrote on Twitter. “As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. Watch!”
The final attempt to vote on a “skinny repeal” ultimately failed, after Sen. John McCain voted against McConnell’s last ditch effort to go after the unpopular bill. He was joined by Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
“It’s very hard to do the right thing,” McCain reportedly said prior to entering the chamber.
