Senate fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act

The Senate vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) failed by a 47 to 51 margin.  Now that repeal of the entire bill is all but certain not to happen this Congress, Republicans are switching to a “death by a thousand cuts” strategy to defeat the law.  They have introduced smaller-scope bills to defund and to block hiring of staff to implement key provisions of the law. The Arc and UCP will work to oppose these and other similar anticipated measures.
