13+ Brilliant Tweets About Last Night’s Health Care Vote That Should Be In The History Books

The Senate just voted on a repeal for Obamacare last night

And it was mostly expected to be a tie vote with the Vice President with the skinny repeal going through. However, that’s not what happened. In the morning of July 28th, John McCain, who had voted yes on going through with a senate hearing for a full repeal, voted no on the actual repeal.

#10 And it wasn’t just the three republicans that shut down Obamacare, it was activists too.

#11 The ACLU released some stunning statistics

#12 Collins, Murkowski and McCain didn’t change the outcome

#13 The people and the protesters did.

Organisations such as ADAPT and others fought for it, and saved the people
