Like the Donald Trump-backed GOP health care bill that House Speaker Mitch McConnell declared dead on Monday night, the Obamacare Repeal legislation died on Tuesday. Responsible for the death of the landmark health care law passed during the term of former President Barack Obama are three female Republican senators.

They are Maine Sen. Susan Collins, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, and West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito. Collins, who also opposed the Trump version of the bill -- along with Utah Sen. Mike Lee, Kansas Sen. Jerry Moran, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul – said she voted against the approach to the repeal of Obamacare in 2015.

She said in a statement that it is not constructive to repeal a law already interwoven within the current health care system and hope to come up with some kind of replacement over the next two years.

Reason why she is in Washington

Capito added that she will not support the Obamacare repeal bill because her work in Washington, as a representative of West Virginia, does not involve hurting people. “For months, I have expressed reservations about the direction of the bill to replace Obamacare. My position on this issue is driven by its impact on West Virginians,” she said in a statement, Time reported.

A Congressional Budget Office estimate placed the number of people who would lose their health coverage, if Obamacare is repealed, at 23 million. The three female senators are not part of the all-male working group that drafted the doomed GOP Health Care Act, The New York Daily News reported.

McConnell refuses to concede loss

McConnell, however, refused to concede the loss on the Obamacare repeal bill even if three GOP senators have publicly stated their stand against it. Only two Republican senators who would vote against the legislation are needed to kill the bill. The Democrats have said that they will not support a repeal of Obamacare, but the White House reportedly wants to subject the repeal legislation to a vote so the result would be on the record.

The development frustrated Trump who told reporters he is very disappointed because he has been hearing about the repeal and replacement for seven years. “We finally get a chance to repeal and replace and we don’t take advantage of it,” he complained.

The withdrawal of support by Lee and Moran surprised him, Trump said, but he placed the blame squarely on the Democrats whom he accused of having no thought process. Now that two legislative efforts have apparently failed, Trump said he would just let Obamacare fail then lawmakers will eventually come together and fix it.

As expected, Trump went on a Twitter storm again with rants about the loss of his plan to kill Obamacare.
