I hate the damn fact that I was right about my post last night!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE & DESPISE SUSAN COLLINS, RAND PAUL and LISA MURKOWSKI!
Yahoo decided to throw it in my face with this article 10 minutes ago.
From the article linked above:
Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., says his last-ditch attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare is only a few votes shy of 50 and could pass before the fast-approaching Sept. 30 procedural deadline.
“We’re probably at 48, 49 [votes] and we’re talking to three more,” Cassidy told reporters at a briefing Friday morning. “I’m pretty confident we’ll get there on the Republican side.”
“I told my wife when I got home last night that yesterday may have been my best day as a senator,” Cassidy said.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., announced Friday morning on Twitter he would not support the bill, which he called “Obamacare Lite.” If just two more GOP senators come out against it, the bill is dead, given that no Democrats support the measure.
“Mitch [McConnell] has always said show me you can get 50 votes,” Cassidy said. “I’m meeting with senators. My staff is calling staff, whatever we can do to make sure we have 50.”
