Trump suggests Republicans will let ACA market collapse, then rewrite health law
Yeah, sure, they want to take the rap for that.
But it became quickly apparent that GOP leaders, who were caught off guard by one of defections of their members Monday night, lacked the votes to abolish parts of the 2010 law outright.
Three centrist Republican senators — Susan Collins (Maine), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) — all said they would oppose any vote to proceed with an immediate repeal of the law.
Apparently, we are to take this to mean they would vote against McConnell's plan to right now legislate repeal to be effective in two years' time.
