On Tuesday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Senate Republicans planned to vote on a straight repeal of the Affordable Care Act, established in 2010 by President Barrack Obama.
But his efforts collapsed after two Republican Senators, Susan Collins and Shelley Moore Capito, said they would vote “no” to repeal Obamacare without a replacement for it.
“My position on this issue is driven by its impact on West Virginians. With that in mind, I cannot vote to repeal Obamacare without a replacement plan that addresses my concerns and the needs of West Virginians,” Capito said in a statement. Collins made her comments to reporters at the Capitol.
