Planned Parenthood to send superhero capes to senators who voted against healthcare bill

Twitter

Planned Parenthood says it’s sending superhero capes to the 51 senators who voted against the Senate’s ObamaCare repeal bill.

“We’re delivering #IStandWithPP capes to all the senators who voted against #Trumpcare. Thank you for protecting our care!” the organization tweeted.

The Senate GOP’s healthcare bill failed in a 49-51 vote late Thursday night, stifling Republicans’ hope of fulfilling their seven-year promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

{mosads}Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was the deciding vote on the bill, joining GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) in breaking with their party to oppose the bill. 

The bill would have defunded Planned Parenthood and repealed key parts of ObamaCare, getting rid of the individual and employer mandates in the healthcare plan.
