US healthcare: Senate 'skinny repeal' bill fails

US healthcare: Senate 'skinny repeal' bill fails”

"I've stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict party-line basis without a single Republican vote", he said.

"If they're going to quit, well then, maybe by God they ought to start at the top", he said.

On Friday, during a speech to law enforcement officials in NY, the president - in a rambling address about a wide range of things on his mind - suggested McCain's dramatic vote would clear the path to an idea he has long seemed to favor over all others.

The final vote was 49-51.

The call to turn to other items on the GOP agenda, such the annual defense spending bill and a likely contentious battle on tax reform, is its own disappointment, said a prominent lawmaker from the neighboring chamber.

Trump addressed his concerns about the Senate process in his tweets on Saturday.

The jockeying contributed to an odd situation in which the Senate could be passing a bill while simultaneously begging the House to reject it in favor of something better - with no guarantees that something better can pass either Republican-led chamber down the road. "It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country".

He also said the "very outdated filibuster rule" must go.

3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down. They are laughing at R's.

Senators in the U.S. have rejected a measure to repeal parts of former president Barack Obama's healthcare law after a night of suspense, dealing a serious blow to President Donald Trump's agenda.

On Friday, the president met with three Republican senators who hope to achieve a new plan that would repeal and replace Obamacare, according to a report from Politico.

Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona cast the deciding vote against the proposal.

The subsidies, totaling about $7 billion a year, help reduce deductibles and copayments for consumers with modest incomes.

"This Bill is lighting the American health system on fire with intentionality", Democratic Senator Chris Murphy said after the text was released.

Trump also tweeted about his disappointments, particularly with China and its lack of action on North Korea.

"Boy, oh, boy, they've been working on that one for seven years".
