Last night was a heartbreaking night for every Republican who was hoping to see ObamaCare finally get thrown in the trash and replaced with something better. Last night, Republicans failed a tiny repeal vote by one single person.
After the final heartbreaking loss, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knew what he had to do. He took the floor, looked his colleagues in their faces and:
Mitch McConnell CRIED on the Senate Floor.
This was not a fake cry, either. No staged tears. This was a man who was heartbroken and also realizes that his time as Majority Leader of the Senate is up. You can watch him choke over his words.
THE SADDEST PART OF ALL WAS WATCHING SENATOR MCCONNELL TELL ALL THE REPUBLICANS, “IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON.”
You know, the thing is that I actually agreed with almost everything Mitch said in that speech. In fact, if anyone is to blame for this loss, it was the Democrats who obstruct everything and the 3 Republicans who voted no: GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and John McCain (Arizona).
So, now we have the names of the Republicans who refused to come together for a repeal that was so small they called it “skinny Obamacare”. Should these 3 get re-elected? Comment your answer and share this out everywhere.
