Women Rule: 3 Female GOP Senators say ‘No’ to Repeal Only Bill

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) can’t buy love, especially from the women in his caucus.

Moments after his secretly concocted healthcare bill collapsed last night, he said he would move forward with a repeal-only bill asked for by President Donald Trump.

Less than 12 hours later, he is stopped dead in his tracks by three female Republican Senators  – Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV.) who announced that they will vote to stop the repeal only bill in its tracks.

The earlier repeal and replace bill crashed late last night after Senators Jerry Moran (Kansas) and Mike Lee (Utah) joined Susan Collins (Maine) and Rand Paul (Kentucky) in opposition to the bill.

Reacting to the latest setback, President Trump blamed Democrats and a few Republican senators for the failure.

“We were let down by all of the Democrats and a few Republicans,” Trump tweeted.

The president repeated his notion that it is better to let Obamacare fail.

“As I have always said, let ObamaCare fail and then come together and do a great healthcare plan. Stay tuned!” Trump tweeted.

Explaining her reason for coming out against the repeal-only bill, Sen. Murkowski said Republicans should not do a repeal without a replacement of Obamacare.

“No. I said back in January that if we’re going to do a repeal there has to be a replacement. There’s enough chaos and uncertainty already,” she told reporters earlier today.
