2 more senators oppose health bill in apparent body blow to GOP effort to replace Obamacare

2 more senators oppose health bill in apparent body blow to GOP effort to replace Obamacare | 17 July 2017 | Two more Republican senators announced their opposition to the GOP health care bill Monday night, leaving the party leadership in the Senate short of votes to bring the legislation to the floor for a vote. In a pair of identical tweets, Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah announced they would vote against a procedural measure needed to advance the health care bill to the floor for consideration. Lee and Moran's simultaneous announcements delivered a apparent body blow to the bill, which would have required the support of at least 50 of the Senate's 52 Republicans. Two other Republicans, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Susan Collins (R-Me.) had already announced their opposition.
