Cruz Amendment To Do Away With Obamacare Voted Down

03.22.13 01:23 PM

Today, the Senate rejected an effort by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to repeal Obamacare; but it is probably far from the last attempt by Republicans to dismantle President Barack Obama’s healthcare plan.

Cruz’s effort would have been carried out through an amendment to the Senate budget proposal that sought to “establish a deficit-neutral reserve fund to provide for the repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.” The amendment failed 45-54.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) put out a statement Obamacare *for being too expensive and “not working” in the way that was promised by Democrats.

“Three years later, the President’s health care law remains a job-killer that grows the government and slows the economy, which is why it’s important to repeal the whole thing and replace it with commonsense reforms that lower costs and that Americans actually want,” McConnell said.
