CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, WASHINGTON, D.C- The U.S. Senate, on Friday, voted down a GOP bill to repeal Obamacare, former president Barack Obama's signature universal healthcare initiative officially known as the Affordable Care Act.


The measure fail to defeat 51-49 with Arizona Sen. John McCain casting the deciding vote, he and two other Republicans, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, together becoming the GOP trio that sealed the fate of President Donald Trump on one of his most high-profile policy agendas.


"It offered no replacement to reform our healthcare system," McCain said in a press release on Friday of the Obamacare repeal bill.


Ohio 9th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, a Toledo Democrat and the longest serving woman in congress, and whose congressional district extends to Cleveland, told Clevelandurbannews.com in a statement that she is relieved and hopes it will bring an end to the Republican shenanigans over a current health care initiative that is in the best interest of the American people.


"Let's hope this partisan driven chaos that was causing so much anxiety for the American people is finally over," said Kaptur. "I am relieved the Senate rejected this ill-conceived ruse and all the Ohioans who gained the security of health insurance thanks to the Affordable Care Act can have peace of mind."

Kaptur said that "the American people need congress to fight for them on health care instead of appeasing special interests and catering to partisan politics."

The fight over one of the most controversial public policy measures in the country's history puts to rest, for now, a seven- year battle by Republicans in congress to dismantle the Affordable Care Act, a federal law that congress adopted in 2010 that brought about sweeping and revolutionary changes in the nation's health care system coupled with accessibility to heath care insurance to millions of ill-fated Americans.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky was numb and had worked the last three months to attempt to craft legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare that his Senate colleagues would embrace, obviously to no avail.


"This was really disappointing wasn't it?" said McConnell after the 1:30 am Friday morning Senate vote that toppled President Trump's campaign promise to end Obamacare and keeps in tact public policy that defines, in part, the legacy of Obama, the nation's first Black president, and Trump's all so articulate predecessor.


McConnell had said that repealing and not replacing Obamacare was also acceptable to him, a stance taken in recent weeks as the bill, officially titled the American Heath Care Act of 2017, became mired in controversy after passing in the House of Representatives in May with Democrats in both the House and Senate in staunch opposition to the proposed legislation.


On Tuesday Senate Republicans, with Rob Portman from Ohio aboard as well as Arizona Sen John McCain, who is fighting brain cancer, voted 51-50 to move forward with debate on Trumpcare.


Led by Organizing for Action, opponents of the bill have regularly protested against Portman in recent months, and often at his door step at the federal building where his Cleveland office is located.


A Washington Post poll released two Sunday's ago says Americans prefer Obamacare by a 2-1 margin and as support of the legislation increases Trump's approval rating is decreasing, having dropped from 42 percent in April to 36 percent.


Notably, the bill, among a host of mandates, required an overhaul of medicaid funding and was  opposed by Ohio Gov John Kasich, a 2016 unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for president. And it was aimed at eliminating the core mandates of Obamacare, including the annual financial penalty against Americans who fail to secure health care insurance.
