Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump made a shocking announcement earlier this week–one which may have sealed the fate of ObamaCare.

For months, Republicans have been working to write a better healthcare bill than the one Obama forced upon Americans.

But an unexpected event has caused complications on the proposed bill–and once again the vote has been postponed.

Majority leader Mitch McConnell announced the postponement due to John McCain’s absence after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

McCain is expected to make a full recovery at his home in Arizona.

Unfortunately, Sen. John McCain’s vote is necessary for Republicans to reach 51 votes to pass the healthcare bill–and President Trump has now made a major decision as a result of McCain’s absence.

The Daily Caller reported:

GOP leadership hoped to vote on the bill this week, but Republicans need McCain to gain a majority as two GOP lawmakers have already come out against the revised draft. Moderate Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and conservative Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky both oppose the bill and have said they would not vote to even begin debate on the legislation. Six other Senators remain undecided.

Breitbart News reported:

President Donald J. Trump is calling on congressional Republicans to drop their failed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare in one fell swoop and instead pass a clean repeal of the failed health care overhaul from the previous administration now and push through a bipartisan replacement plan later.

While the bill has been controversial to say the least, the repeal of ObamaCare is still a necessary matter to attend to.

Both President Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are calling for a full re-evaluation of the healthcare bill after an alarming four Republicans backed away from supporting the bill–since another delay seems inevitable at this point.

The Daily Caller reported:

The bill has faced criticism from Republican and Democrat governors alike. The state executives, some of whom accepted expanded Obamacare Medicaid subsidies, have argued against the inclusion of deep cuts to the program.

President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called for the full, clean repeal of Obamacare in late-night statements Monday.

The statements were released after four Republican senators backed away from the repeal-and-replace bill, leaving McConnell unable to reach the 50 votes required to pass the Obamacare rewrite.

With President Trump’s recent decision to re-evaluate the healthcare bill, it may take some time before a full repeal is made.

For now it seems ObamaCare’s existence has been thwarted once more.
