The First Votes In The Senate

The Senate voted yesterday to begin debate on the repeal Obamacare bill.  So far, there has been a vote on one amendment that would have reset the entire measure.  In this second vote, the amendment failed.  There is no limitation on the amendments that can be offered, so we can expect more coming unless the bill gets pulled from the floor.  It's hard to see how something passes, but you never know.

A friend of mine predicted this morning that the President is going to try to work with the Democrats to come up with something new that can satisfy both sides.  I doubt it.  We shall see.
