The bill represented the final chance for Republicans to pass legislation before the September 30 deadline allowing a simple majority vote rather than requiring 60 votes to avoid a Democratic filibuster. But those attempts came to a crashing, and potentially fatal, halt Tuesday when McConnell conceded defeat in the effort to pass the Graham-Cassidy bill. After confirming that the bill would not go to a vote, McConnell said attention will now turn to tax reform. "This is abhorrent", Meghan tweeted of the report on Wednesday.

According to The Hill, two sources who attended Trump's meeting with conservative leaders at the White House on Monday said the president vented his frustration with McCain for his role in killing two GOP Obamacare repeal bills.

Don't miss: What is Self-Marriage? For McCain, it's "imitating the thumbs-down of his historic health-care vote".


Back in July, McCain dealt the death blow to "skinny repeal," which aimed to repeal parts of ObamaCare, based on concerns with the process.

Trump is being described as isolated, friendless, and at war with everyone around him. Trump did not give up all hope on the bill, but suggested it would not get the 50 votes - assuming a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Pence - it needed to clear the Senate because of opposition from McCain, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La. "He's earned that right". "John McCain, distributing a video that showed the Arizona Republican on board with the mission in the past". He sparked bipartisan backlash after he mocked McCain's time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

Trump is also no stranger to mocking impersonations. Scarborough said. "Because, I guarantee you, I was raised in the same region and the same socioeconomic background, going to the same Southern Baptist churches, going to the same public schools, going to the same public colleges, state schools, that these people went to". During his campaign, he mocked a reporter with a physical disability, prompting a wave of criticism.
