Two other Republican senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of Maine, had already said they would not support a procedural step to begin debate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that Republicans would look to move forward with their plan to repeal ObamaCare, even as the repeal-only plan has already faced opposition by some GOP senators. We're not going to own it. I'm not going to own it," Trump said Tuesday at the White House in his first public appearance since the Senate bill fell apart. "I can tell you the Republicans are not going to own it. We'll let Obamacare fail and then the Democrats are going to come to us."(ANI)
