'It's an insane process': How the health-care bill failed

Certainly, Neil Gorsuch's confirmation should be applauded, especially since he has proven to be a bold conservative on the bench, asking relevant questions and challenging unconstitutional actions. Bob Casey Jr., the Scranton Democrat, opposed the Senate GOP measure.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he is "disappointed" in Republicans who did not support the health care plan and that he might be prepared to "let Obamacare fail". Susan Collins of Maine, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska left the GOP, one vote shy of getting to a tie vote that Vice President Mike Pence could break in favor of passage.

Even with that rule in place, Republicans have been unable to reach the bare majority they need to pass the legislation. Instead, he announced plans to vote in coming days on a two-year transition to simply repeal the health care law with no replacement. Premiums for health care plans were also estimated to double within a decade.

While Americans on both sides of the aisle have acknowledged improvements that could be made to the ACA, the National Center for Health Statistics has found that since the law passed, almost 20 million Americans who were previously uninsured have been able to purchase health insurance through state marketplaces. It remains to be seen how many Republicans in either the House or Senate would support that strategy.

Health insurance is complicated because every part of it affects every other part. Despite the three defections to the repeal-only bill, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn told reporters on Tuesday that McConnell would likely still move forward with the procedural vote later this week.

Trump's healthcare bill suffered its latest blow on Monday evening, when two more Republicans, Sens. So McConnell and Trump push for a repeal and delay strategy.

GOP leaders-including McConnell and Trump-argue that repealing Obamacare without first passing a health care plan to replace it would give them more time to draft a bill that can actually get enough support to pass. Repealing Obamacare was considered critical to amassing savings for passing a tax cut later this year, and many members of Congress are anxious about giving up the effort after expending so much of Trump's early political capital.

She wrote: "Democrats extend the hand of friendship if Republicans will set aside repeal, abandon cuts to Medicaid, and abandon huge tax breaks for the wealthy".

Messer, a member of the House who in May voted to pass a different version of repeal and replace, agrees with the president.

In the morning, Trump tweeted a barrage of criticism over his party's failure on its flagship legislative priority. We made that pledge to the American people.

And it could cost 8,400 Americans their lives. "Or these people really don't believe anything they've said", said Paul.
