President Donald Trump says the Senate has the votes to repeal Obamacare. Majority Whip John Cornyn, who counts votes for the GOP said, “I think that’s aspirational.”
Republican John Thune of South Dakota, another member of Republican leadership added, “If there were 50 votes, we’d be voting.”
Repeatedly claiming that Republicans have the votes to repeal major parts of Obamacare early next year, Trump is stoking expectations that the GOP can fulfill its seven-year pledge before the 2018 midterm elections. It’s a promise that Republicans once again might not be able to keep.
According to Trump the Senate will have the 50 votes needed to enact the bill known as Graham-Cassidy, the last of a series of repeal bids that went down in flames this summer and fall.
