Senator John McCain was the deciding vote last night when the senators voted on a limited repeal of the Obamacare bill. He voted no.

McCain (R-Ariz.) claims he voted against the “skinny” bill because he did not believe the legislation would “actually reform our health care system.”

According to McCain, “While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens.”  He continued, “The speaker’s statement that the House would be ‘willing’ to go to conference’ does not ease my concern that this shell of a bill could be taken up and passed at any time.”

McCain’s ‘no’ vote was the 3rd one cast by Republicans. McCain basically ended the GOP’s efforts in eliminating Obamacare.
