President Donald Trump is predicting a ‘great victory’ for Republicans today in the Senate vote that will determine whether debate begins on an Obamacare repeal bill.
‘ObamaCare is torturing the American People. The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand,’ Trump tweeted.
The president also gave Senator John McCain a hero’s welcome back to Washington on Tuesday as the Capitol braced itself for the vote that’s a linchpin to Trump’s domestic policy agenda.
McCain, who’s recovering from brain surgery, could be the decider in the procedural motion that needs 51 votes to pass. The GOP holds 52 seats in the Senate and can lean on the vice president in case of a tie.
‘So great that John McCain is coming back to vote. Brave – American hero!’ Trump said of the man he once derided as ‘not a war hero’ because he was captured and held prisoner in North Vietnam.
