New GOP health bill lacks the votes to pass

BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 07/17/17 08:37 PM EDT

GOP Sens. Jerry Moran (Kansas) and Mike Lee (Utah) announced on Monday night they will not support taking up a bill repealing and replacing ObamaCare, effectively blocking the legislation.

"This closed-door process has yielded the [bill], which fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act or address healthcare’s rising costs. For the same reasons I could not support the previous version of this bill, I cannot support this one," Moran said in a statement.

Lee added on Twitter that he and Moran will not support proceeding to "this version" of the Senate GOP legislation, known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act.

2. Once again the conservatives are trying to force it to be more cruel

While the moderates sit on their fat asses. This isn't over until the gutless wonders who are (R) moderates oppose this abomination.

3. Better known as..

the "Don't Care" Act. This should stir up the old Twit and his tweets. He said it was going to make him angry if it didn't pass. Ruh-roh!

6. K&R

People like Mike Lee, who primaried Bob Bennett in UT, were elected to "repeal Obamacare". They won't accept anything short of that.

8. Remember this...

They are not voting no because they have found a soul. They are voting no because this bill is not draconian enough. Because it is still too much like OCare...you know...human.

10. Until more moderate Senators break it isn't over

The conservatives will cave in the end like the Tea Tards, aka "Freedom Caucus", did in the House.
