Jul 26, 2017

  

On Wednesday afternoon, the Senate rejected a plan to repeal major parts of the Affordable Care Act without providing a replacement. Seven Republicans and every Democrat voted against it.

According to reports, Senate Republicans will now try to repeal parts of the ACA, including the mandate to buy insurance and the medical device tax.
