The United States Senate on Friday once again failed to repeal and replace Obamacare.
It would have retroactively repealed the Obamacare penalty on individuals who do not purchase health insurance, repealed for eight years a penalty on certain employers who do not provide employees with insurance and repealed a medical device tax until 2020.
The "skinny" repeal bill was brought to a vote early Friday morning with the expectation that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had gathered enough Republican votes for it to pass. "We have to keep working at this until we get the job done". "I'm optimistic we can still get it done".
The Senate struggled late into the night to craft and then vote on a so-called "skinnyrepeal" of the health law, but came up empty as the bill was defeated in a 51-49 vote that prompted gasps in the chamber.
Ryan on Thursday ceded to GOP senators' demands that the House commit to going to conference on a health care bill, but added a caveat that will provide his members cover from having to take another hard vote.

Senate Republicans' attempt to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act died early Friday morning, with three GOP senators - Sen. Instead, those concerned about the millions of Americans whose health coverage is at risk should bring this reconciliation process to a close - and, instead, pursue an open, bipartisan approach to strengthening the nation's health care system. "It's time to end the failed status quo".
However, it is unlikely that if the bill makes it to conference with the House that it will involve Democratic input, if the stated goal continues to be repealing the Affordable Care Act. Republican senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski also voted against it. "Passing this legislation will allow us to work with our colleagues in the House toward a final bill that can go to the president, repeal Obamacare, and undo its damage".
One setback here is the fact that the House is about to leave for its August recess.
"The White House doesn't support a conference, the White House really likes the skinny bill and would like it to become law", Murphy said, according to the Guardian. They would likely be able to get cheaper policies, though they would cover less and require enrollees to pay more out of pocket for care.
Once Congress returns in early September, it sounds like the health care talks will resume, and Mark Meadows says that President Trump isn't abandoning his promise. "He's going to deliver". For President Donald Trump and the Republican Party, it's still complicated. This is sentiment he has expressed in the past. Senators who vote for the "skinnyrepeal" proposal would be creating the conditions for deep cuts that aren't in the "skinny" bill itself but would emerge from the conference.
