According to reports Senate Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is going to delay the vote on Health Care until after the 4th of July recess.
The GOP have been attempting to repeal and replace Obamacare with a better version, but also something that can pass Congress.
Being that Republicans only hold the majority of votes in the senate by a small number, this task seems almost impossible.
The bill thus far has been unable to satisfy every GOP reps wishes… and good luck accomplishing that goal.
(Shouldn’t it be the constituents’ wishes, by the way? Not what politicians want.)
So far, those problems have caused 5 GOP senators to withdraw support for now.
Senate Republican leaders have done an abrupt about-face on the health care bill: They’re now planning to delay the vote to take up the bill until after the July 4 recess, according to two senior GOP aides.
They say Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement at the beginning of today’s Senate Republican lunch.
The bottom line: “Vote after break. McConnell wants to win. Going to make changes new score and win,” said one aide.
Between the lines: Majority Whip John Cornyn had said earlier that the vote was going ahead. But ultimately, the decision is McConnell’s — and he was getting too much pushback from Senate Republican holdouts who said they weren’t ready to vote this quickly, without changes to the bill.
Guarantee McConnell’s 4th of July break is going to be very busy.
Will the bill pass?
