The Obamacare project has caused quite the turbulence during this past year, and its ineffectiveness was not only witnessed by many but also went to show that Obama never lifted a finger to help the people of America. For that purpose, President Trump demanded a suitable replacement from Senate, that did not comply for more than six months. After going back and forth for quite some time, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was instructed to leave Senate under lockdown until the matter is resolved.
Now, it seems that not only the issue is fixed, but that the repeal of Obamacare happened though a final, tie-breaking vote by no else but VP Mike Pence.
Senator John McCain also contributed to the entire progress, pointing out that America comes first and differences between parties need to be resolved for the sake of the American people. Of course, protesters of the liberal side chanted “Kill the bill, don’t kill us!” and “Shame!,” which only caused more frustration among Senators.
Take a look at the mayhem happening behind closed doors:
By the time everything settled down, the count of the votes came to 50-50, and it is then that Pence took charge and cut the cord, so to speak.
McConnell had simply to say that “This is just the beginning.”
He also expressed faith that the bill will be passed by House as well.
Donald Trump took the time to congratulate Senate on a job well done, via his Twitter account.
Take a look at his encouraging statement:
Big day for HealthCare. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate!

“The Senate must now pass a bill and get it to my desk so we can finally end the Obamacare disaster once and for all,” he added.
There is still time ahead before the deal is sealed, but things are looking up from this point on.
Pence might even find himself as the tiebreaker again, which would put the Democrats over the edge again since we all know how that’s gonna go.
