Last night, the Senate took a stunning vote.
It reveals why Republicans failed repeatedly this year to repeal and ultimately replace Obamacare.
Here’s what happened: Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) offered an amendment to the budget to repeal Obamacare’s Title I regulations. These regulations represent the beating heart of Obamacare and form the entire regulatory regime that has driven up premiums and narrowed health care choices.
Unfortunately, only 32 Republican Senators followed through on their promises to repeal Obamacare. That means 19 Republicans went back on their word and voted to protect Obamacare.
Once again, the United States Senate demonstrated a complete inability to uphold its promise to repeal Obamacare. We should expect more from our elected officials.
