King Blasts Senate ObamaCare Vote

Jul 28, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Steve King released the following statement after the United States Senate defeated a “skinny repeal” bill that would have allowed the Senate to continue working to repeal ObamaCare, a goal long sought by King and a priority of President Trump.

“Last night, the Senate voted to leave ObamaCare unchanged by a vote of 51-49. ObamaCare is a law that ought not exist, and I will continue to advocate for its complete repeal.”

“Obamacare passed initially by one vote: that vote belonging to Senator Al Franken whose 2008 Senate victory was tainted with accusations of election irregularities. Among the votes saving ObamaCare last night was Lisa Murkowski’s. Murkowski is a Senator who was initially appointed to her position by her father, and whose 2010 write-in campaign was essentially a revolt against GOP primary voters.”

“As a final point, John McCain recently told the Senate he would return and ‘give all of you cause to regret the nice things you said about me.’ He kept his word.”
