The U.S. Senate rejected a proposal Wednesday designed to repeal large aspects of Obamacare without a replacement for the health care law in place. The measure failed with a 45-55 vote with seven Republicans voting against the measure.
Wednesday afternoon's vote follows up a Tuesday night vote that also would have passed a measure to repeal major parts of the law.
Repealing and replacing Obamacare has been a rallying cry for Republicans since Obamacare became law, but President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have found it difficult to cobble together a coalition willing to pass legislation limiting the scope of the Affordable Care Act.
