Republicans are breathing much easier post health vote

Thank you Senator Susan Collins, Senator Lisa Murkowski and Senator John McCain for standing strong by preventing the "Skinny Repeal" from imploding the American health care system. 
In fact, by removing the individual mandate as the GOP proposed, the Obamacare coverage would be unsustainable leaving 16 million without health insurance.

Regardless of how much drama was involved in the early morning Republiucan health care debacle, the  fact that Obamacare lives today on "GOP  Failure Friday" is a relief to people like Senator Lindsey Graham, who didn't want the cruel repeal to pass, anyway.
Senator John McCain bravely voted "no" on GOP Failure Friday

GOP senators shred 'skinny' Obamacare repeal — then say they'll support it (???).  Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Ron Johnson and Bill Cassidy initially said they wouldn't vote for a "skinny" Obamacare repeal, but later said they received assurances that it will not become law.  (Senator McCain did not support the bill). 

Graham had called it a "disaster" as policy. This made no sense. "Not only do we not replace Obamacare, but we own the disaster." (Senator Graham). Nevertheless, Graham should  have voted "no", along with his colleagues, including his friend Senator McCain.

This "morning after" the dramatic vote, there are 16 million American people who can breath easier about their own health care coverage, because they all risked losing it if the GOP bill passed.  

More important, Senator John McCain saved his Republican party from implosion with his decisive "no" vote. In fact,the Republican party would never recover from a stupid "skinny repeal".  Thank God this debacle is over- temporarily.  It's time to vote for "Medicare for all"

Any vote to move forward with Obamacare repeal would prolong the agony of figuing out how to improve the Affordable Care Act, without any viable plan for such dramatic reform.

Obviously, three brave Republicans, thanks to Senator Susan Collins, Senator Lisa Murkowski and Senator John McCain, may have saved their political colleagues from facing 2018 election disaster.
