I regret that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the phase of Obamacare will not be successful, that doesn't mean we should give up. We will now try a different way to bring the American people relief from Obamacare. In the coming days, the Senate will take up and vote on a repeal of Obamacare combined with a stable two year transition period as we work toward patient centered healthcare.
Passing this legislation will provide the opportunity for Senators of all parties to engage with a fresh start and a new beginning for the American people.>> Make no mistake about it, passing repeal without a replacement would be a disaster. The door to bipartisanship is open right now, not with repeal, but with an effort to improve the existing system.
The door is open right now, Republican leadership only needs to walk through it.
