Republican senator: ObamaCare repeal bill may not have votes to pass
- Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), a member of House leadership, said Tuesday the GOP's plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare as it stands may not be able to get the support needed to pass the Senate.
"What I don't like is, it may not be a plan that gets a majority votes and let's us move on. Because, we can't stay where we are with the plan we've got now," Blunt said on KMBZ, as first reported by CNN.
"I think the nucleus of the plan is clearly there, and the president says it's negotiable and so do House members," he said.
"So, I'll be interested to be a part of that negotiation as we work toward a majority in the House and Senate that puts a bill on the president's desk."(Excerpt) Read more at: thehill.com ...
