At the beginning of the day, there were two solid votes against the Trumpcare bill in the Senate. That meant Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) could not afford to lose a single vote in an effort to bring the vote to the floor.

Tonight, McConnell lost two more votes. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Sen. Jerry Moran (R-KS) have publicly stated that they will under no circumstances vote in favor of a motion to proceed on the Trumpcare vote.

In its current form, Trumpcare is dead.

Confusion reigns in the Republican-controlled Senate as the GOP tries to decide what to do next. It was a strategic move by Lee and Moran as nobody wanted to be seen as the one Senator to kill the bill, hence the joint statement.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015. Unbroken, Bill continues to write for Breitbart Unmasked and his private blog, http://theclintoniconoclast.com.
