Health Care Reform Dies In The Senate


Around 1:45 am on the morning of Friday, July 28th, the Senate voted on an amendment put forward by Senate Republicans known as the “Skinny Repeal” of the Affordable Care Act. That amendment failed by a vote of 49-51.


The Skinny Repeal would have repealed the employer and individual mandates of the ACA.  It also would have extended a moratorium on a medical device excise tax among other items.


For now at least this signals the end of the debate to repeal and replace the current health care law.
