GOP ACA Repeal Collapses

The GOP’s month-long effort to pass health legislation ended Friday morning when Senator John McCain joined Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski in an effort to block the stripped down repeal bill.

The ‘skinny’ repeal bill was defeated 49-51, falling just one short of the vote needed to pass it.

After pulling the bill from the floor, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “It’s time to move on.”
