Another attempt, if you can call it that, to repeal and replace Obamacare has come and gone. Lindsey Graham has pulled the bill, and it won’t see a vote.
Lots of liberals in the mainstream media couldn’t wait to publish the details.
The Senate will not vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal Obamacare, Republican leaders announced Tuesday, dealing a devastating blow to President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers who tried to make a last-ditch attempt to deliver on the party’s years-long campaign promise.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced the decision at a lunch with fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill, conceding what had become clear Monday night: They didn’t have the votes.
And USA Today reports that the Democrats are gloating all over social media:
You’re probably gonna start a fight.
But that won’t keep the Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee from telling us how they really feel about the death of the Graham-Cassidy bill, the Senate’s last-ditch attempt to overhaul Obamacare.

It wouldn’t be the first time the Democrats acted in poor taste.
Maybe it’s a little too soon for them to be gloating. Even if the swamp needs to drain before there’s an Obamacare repeal, the fat lady hasn’t sung yet, and Republicans still control the House, Senate and White House.
