As of Wednesday morning the Senate began the process of  repealing Obamacare with Votes 51-48.  Hands down the vote to repeal this abomination of a law has begun.

At 1:13 PM EST the U.S. Senate passed a budget resolution that will begin the process of repealing Obamacare. The final vote tally was 51-48. The resolution instructs the House to have a repeal bill ready by January 27.

Seven years ago, on December 24, 2009, the Senate voted 60-39 to pass Obamacare. All Republicans voted against it, all Democrats voted for it.

“Today, we take the first steps to repair the nation’s broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors,” Republican Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee who sponsored the legislation, said in a statement.

Republicans did not have the 60 votes needed to repeal Obamacare, so they opted to defund it via a budget resolution, which only requires a simple majority.

“That means they can essentially gut the law, removing all the subsidies that help low- and middle-income people buy health insurance and getting rid of the smorgasbord of taxes — on medical devices, insurance companies and wealthy individuals — that pay for those subsidies,” NPR explained.

Republicans, despite having voted more than 60 times to repeal Obamacare, have never had a legitimate plan to replace this debacle of a healthcare plan. It has been reported that it will likely take two to four years to replace the existing Affordable Care Act.  This leaves the usual suspects talking about how this will leave up to 30 million Americans without insurance, and many paying exceptionally high premiums for having pre-existing conditions, including HIV, diabetes, cancer, and even pregnancy. I wonder how many of those people are refugees and illegal immigrants? How much rampant fraud is counted in those numbers?  Many proponents of this financial trainwreck of unsustainability are taking to the media with their dire predictions of how this devastates Medicare and how it will cost tax payers billions of dollars.  Perhaps they have forgotten that Obamacare has already cost that Americans billions and will continue to do so?

I urge you to call call lawmakers in the House and Senate at 202-224-3121 to voice your concerns and opinions.
