Senate Republicans will not vote on a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare this week, extinguishing the chances of passing the measure by a Sept. 30 deadline that would have allowed the GOP to avert a filibuster by the Democrats.

Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., which would have replaced Obamacare funding with a block grant system that would have let states control both the fate and funding of the embattled healthcare law.
“We made the decision because we don’t have the vote, we’ll postpone the vote,” said Cassidy, a physician who added that he is “disappointed.”
