Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday he “regrets” that Republicans were unable to repeal and replace Obamacare simultaneously but that they must push forward, saying Plan B will be to revive a bill that guts the law but offers a multiyear transition period for insurers and consumers.
The measure earned support from all but one GOP senator who still serves in the body — Susan Collins of Maine — in 2015 before running into President Obama’s veto pen.
“This doesn’t have to the end of the story,” the Kentucky Republican said after the latest version of his plan to replace Affordable Care Act collapsed in the face of Republicans opposition late Monday.
Two Senate Republicans — Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas — doomed the bill late Monday by announcing they could not support a motion to even take up the measure.
