Two Republicans senators who voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015 now say they will not support a similar bill by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Forty-eight current Republican senators supported the 2015 Obamacare repeal bill, including Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia. Now Murkowski and Moore Capito oppose the McConnell measure. Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins has also said she will vote “no,” which is the same position she had in 2015.
The Trump administration backed Obamacare repeal-and-replace legislation stalled Monday as a total of four Republican senators said they wouldn’t support the bill. The GOP currently holds 52 seats in the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement Monday night that the Senate would take a similar approach to the 2015 repeal bill that made it to President Obama’s desk.
