Graham, Cassidy don’t want a vote on their health care bill

Image result for uphill battle


The Senate seems unlikely to vote on its latest bill to repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act, two senior GOP aides said. At the GOP caucus lunches this afternoon, the bill’s sponsors — Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham — asked not to hold a vote, after it became apparent the bill wouldn’t pass. Leadership wants them to announce that decision, aides said.

What happens next: Expect much more discussion about whether to include both health care and tax reform in the 2018 budget, which would let Republicans make another attempt at passing a bill on a party-line vote.
