Cries of “Yes We Did” broke out outside the U.S. Capitol early Friday morning as protesters learned that the Senate GOP did not have the votes to pass the repeal of Obamacare.
The Senate GOP’s final attempt to pass something, anything that would repeal and replace Obamacare took place well after midnight last night as a last attempt “skinny repeal” failed 49-51 as Senator John McCain cast a shock “no” vote despite pleas from Trump and Mike Pence.
McCain’s vote drew audible gasps from the chamber.
