To Save Face, Senate GOP Looking For Best Way To Fail Obamacare Repeal

To save face, Senate Republicans are looking for the best way to fail their Obamacare repeal efforts.

To save face, Senate Republicans are looking for the best way to fail their Obamacare repeal efforts according to Politico.

[The] GOP is deadlocked on whether to hold a vote and can't come to consensus on Tuesday. "I can't guarantee we'll make a decision," said GOP whip John Cornyn of Texas.

The discussion will take place at the Senate GOP’s weekly party lunch Tuesday, Republicans said. Vice President Mike Pence, who has been whipping the bill hard, is also expected to weigh in at the lunch. McConnell could go ahead and schedule a vote, in order to show the conservative grass roots and the broader party that the Senate GOP did all it could to dismantle the law. But there is also concern about the optics of going ahead with a failed vote.

Republicans are also privately worried that President Donald Trump could continue to attack them if they give up on the effort publicly.
