Sen. McConnell Plans Vote on Repealing Obamacare Despite Lacking Enough Support from GOP Senators

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to hold a vote on repealing Obamacare, despite lacking the necessary support from GOP senators. The move is seen as a political gambit to force senators to go on record with their positions on healthcare reform and to fulfill a long-standing Republican campaign promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. However, the effort is likely to fail, as several moderate Republicans have expressed reservations about the bill and Democrats are united in their opposition. The vote is expected to take place next week.
