Current Version of Senate Healthcare Bill Pulled By Senate Majority Leader McConnell

Senate Majority Leader McConnell's initial healthcare bill hit too much Republican resistance.

WASHINGTON, D.C.  -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he doesn't have the votes for an Obamacare repeal-and-replace measure so the Senate will vote on just a repeal plan. 

McConnell's announcement late last night came after two more Republican senators, Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas, announced that they wouldn't support the GOP repeal-and-replace plan. 

McConnell said in the coming days the Senate will vote on a repeal plan that would go into effect in two-years.
