McConnell: Senate Will Hold Procedural Vote to REPEAL ObamaCare Next Week
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday the Senate will hold a procedural vote to repeal ObamaCare “early next week.”
“We’ll have the vote on the motion to proceed to the repeal early next week,” McConnell said from the Senate floor.
This procedural vote, known as a motion to proceed, starts debate on a bill.
The Senate Republicans' latest bill to repeal and replace Obamacare collapsed Monday as more Republican senators announced their opposition to its details. In response, President Trump has called on Congress to just repeal the law and figure out a replacement later.
“Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new health care plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!” Trump tweeted.
