Moderate Republicans Tanking Clean Obamacare Repeal

Monday night, Sens Lee and Moran effectively killing the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) when they announced they would not support the bill, leaving Senate Republicans with no foreseeable path forward to repeal and replace Obamacare. Sens Lee and Moran joined three other Republican Senators refusing to support the bill.

Shortly after it was apparent the BCRA didn’t have the votes to open up debate, Senate Majority Leader McConnell announced he’d hold a clean repeal vote. McConnell indicated the vote would provide “two-year to provide for a stable transition.”

According to some reports, McConnell will hold the clean repeal vote, regardless.
