Senate postpones reckless healthcare bill, but fight is far from over

News has broken that the GOP majority is postponing a vote on their cruel and reckless “healthcare” bill until after July 4th.

Senate Republican leaders have abandoned plans to vote on legislation overhauling the Affordable Care Act this week, bowing to opposition within their own party and demands from several senators for more time to consider the bill.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters after meeting with Republican senators on Tuesday that he would put off a vote until after a weeklong July 4 recess. The move is an abrupt retreat for McConnell, who had been pushing to pass the bill this week just days after releasing it to the public.

After the delay was announced, a few GOP Senators announced that they were now opposed to the bill in it’s current form.

Senator Daines remains silent. Keep up the pressure. Call Senator Daines today and tell him to oppose the Senate bill.
