Senate Votes 51-48 to Advance Budget Resolution … The Dismantling Begins of Obamacare



Last night the US Senate voted 51-48 to approve a budget resolution that would instruct the House and Senate to initiate legislation that would repeal major parts of Obamacare. And so it begins, the begging of the end of Obamacare. It would appear that Obamacare, the so-called Affordable Care Act, is finally going to be repealed, as the disastrous Barack Obama signature piece of healthcare legislation implodes. Congress looks to do many surgical cuts to eliminate Obamacare as opposed to one swift move, much of which is due to the over-intrusive law itself.  President-elect Donald Trump has stated that he wants to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The Senate voted 51 to 48 early Thursday to approve a budget resolution instructing House and Senate committees to begin work on legislation to repeal major portions of the Affordable Care Act. The House is expected to take up the legislation Friday.

Senate Democrats made a late-night show of resistance against gutting the Affordable Care Act by forcing Republicans to take politically charged votes against protecting Medicare, Medicaid and other health-care programs. The measure narrowly passed without the support of any Democrats.

The hours-long act of protest culminated in the early hours of Thursday when Democrats made a dramatic display of rising to speak out against the repeal measure as they cast their votes. The Democrats continued to record their opposition over their objections of Senate Republicans.

In his news conference on Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump insisted that repeal would not occur without a replacement plan. “Obamacare is the Democrats’ problem. We’re going to take the problem off the shelves for them. We’re doing them a tremendous favor,” Trump said.

      It never should of happened in the first place; the misuse of power. The deceiving, sneaky, lying back-stabbing bandit actions of obama, reid and pelosi. The stupidity of the Democrats, who now have a destroyed party which they deserve.

      Supporting leadership of incompetence and intentional betrayal have put them in a cesspool of sewage. And here comes the big flush!
