Graham-Cassidy is Congress’ last attempt at repealing and replacing Obamacare
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Republicans are meeting this morning to discuss the future of the Graham-Cassidy bill, likely the last legislative effort to repeal and replace Obamacare in the foreseeable future. Senate Republicans need 50 votes plus the tie-breaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence in order to pass the bill through reconciliation.
Dan Weber, founder and CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), and a key member of the Obamcare Repeal Coalition who has consulted frequently with Trump administration officials and senior members of Congress, today predicted that the bill would pass, offering a key victory in the President’s effort to fully repeal and replace Obamacare. Weber stated:
“After their embarrassing failures on repealing Obamacare, despite years of promises, this is do-or-die moment for Republicans in the Senate. The Graham-Cassidy bill is the last chance to keep America from descending into Bernie Sanders’ single-payer socialized healthcare system that Democrats are lining up behind. Congressional leadership knows that victory on Graham-Cassidy is the only option. Fair-weather Republicans like Lisa Murkowski who oppose the measure will face primary challenges and early retirement. Those who vote for Graham-Cassidy will have the unqualified support of our organization, 1.3 million members strong, and I predict that by the end of the month, a bill repealing Obamacare will finally go to President Trump’s desk for signature.”
