After Senators gathered together and voted on Trumpcare the final results ended in a 50-50 vote. It was up to Vice President Mike Pence to cast the deciding vote if Trumpcare advances in the Senate or not.
Pence, taking his role as President of the Senate, voted yes on a Motion to Proceed. With Pence’s vote the Senate will now take up Trumpcare.
The only two GOP Senators that did not vote for the legislation were Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
“The Vice President votes in the affirmative and the motion carries,” Pence said as the motion passed 51-50.
