Senate Health Bill Clears Test Vote

By FBCStaff-Vp Pence cast the deciding vote to open up the health care debate.
“The Senate voted 51-50 to start debate, with Vice President Pence casting the tie-breaker. The procedural vote once again brings the ObamaCare overhaul legislation back from the brink of collapse, after intense prodding from President Trump who had pressured senators to skip recess until they act on health care.”
with two republicans voting no with democrats:
“The result was kept in suspense for a while. Sens. Susan Collins, of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, voted no from the start. Several other Republican senators then delayed casting their vote, with no wiggle room left for additional defections on the GOP side.”

Sen Republicans campaigned on repealing Obamacare for seven years. Why would these two senators not be open to discussing an unpopular bill?  Voters sent a republican congress to change the AHA, so why are they ignoring our wishes?   Both senators voted for this bill when it was sent to President Obama and now they are against even discussing it.  Their actions defy logic.  We know Sen Murkowski was defeated in the republican primary so she ran as an independent and won.  So there maybe some rancor towards republicans.  Senator Collins has never had a job that wasn’t in politics so her views may be skewed having never served in private industry.

I’m not sure how we can hold them accountable, but it behoves our elected officials to work around them and their agenda of not cooperating or representing republicans.
