According to media reports, the latest Republican-led effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act has stalled, as several GOP senators announced they would not support the Graham-Cassidy legislation. Senate leader Mitch McConnell said the effort to repeal Obamacare would “go on” but would not commit to a vote on the current bill.
Republicans in Congress sound as if they might be ready to move on from health care.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said from the Senate floor that debate on a last-ditch effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act will continue.
“It’s an important debate for our country,” McConnell said, opening the Senate’s day. “It’s one that will certainly continue.”
But it was notable that McConnell, who said last week that he intended to bring the health care bill up for a vote, did not commit to that Tuesday. He said nothing about whether or when there would be one on the Graham-Cassidy legislation.
