Sanders ‘delighted’ by failure of GOP health plan

Greg Nash

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he’s “delighted” to see GOP senators fleeing from the chamber’s latest version of an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill. 

“I am delighted to see that the disastrous Republican health care plan will not succeed,” he wrote in a statement.

{mosads}”The American people want to proceed to health care for all, not see 22 million Americans thrown off of the health care they currently have. This is a great victory for the millions of Americans who stood up and fought back against this dangerous legislation.”

The comments come after Sens. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) late Monday said they would oppose the motion to proceed on the legislation, effectively stalling the bill in the upper chamber.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) over the weekend delayed an expected vote on the legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare while lawmakers waited for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to recover from surgery.
