McConnell Emotional After Obamacare Repeal Vote Fails: ‘This Is a Disappointment Indeed’ (The Washington Free Beacon)

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) was emotional early Friday morning after the Obamacare repeal vote failed, with three Republican Senators voting against it.

"This is clearly a disappointing moment from skyrocketing costs to plummeting choices and collapsing markets," McConnell said. "Our constituents have suffered through an awful lot under Obamacare. We thought they deserved better. It's why I and many of my colleagues did as we promised and voted to repeal this failed law."

McConnell went on to say that Republicans worked really hard to try to develop a consensus for a better way forward on healthcare, and thanked all the Republicans for their contributions.
