Patterico's Pontifications


These Are the People Who Voted for the 2015 ObamaCare (Partial) Repeal

Filed under: — Patterico @ 9:52 pm

The Senate roll call vote on vote on H.R. 3762 (the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015) can be found here.

I’ll save you a click, though, by setting forth what you need to know here.

The bill received 52 yes votes in 2015 — all from Republicans. (Back then, there were 54 Republicans in the Senate. But in the 2016 election, Republicans lost two seats, and today there are only 52 Republicans in the Senate.) Senators Collins and Kirk were the only Republicans to vote against it. (This is why Susan Collins’s announcement that she will not vote for the bill again does not make her guilty of hypocrisy.) Senator Kirk was since defeated by Democrat Tammy Duckworth, who would also be a no today. So the seats held by the two Republicans who voted against the bill in 2015 are still no votes today.

Fully 48 of the Senators who voted for the 2015 bill (the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015) are still Senators today. They are:

Alexander (R-TN)
Barrasso (R-WY)
Blunt (R-MO)
Boozman (R-AR)
Burr (R-NC)
Capito (R-WV)
Cassidy (R-LA)
Cochran (R-MS)
Corker (R-TN)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Cotton (R-AR)
Crapo (R-ID)
Cruz (R-TX)
Daines (R-MT)
Enzi (R-WY)
Ernst (R-IA)
Fischer (R-NE)
Flake (R-AZ)
Gardner (R-CO)
Graham (R-SC)
Grassley (R-IA)
Hatch (R-UT)
Heller (R-NV)
Hoeven (R-ND)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Johnson (R-WI)
Lankford (R-OK)
Lee (R-UT)
McCain (R-AZ)
McConnell (R-KY)
Moran (R-KS)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Paul (R-KY)
Perdue (R-GA)
Portman (R-OH)
Risch (R-ID)
Roberts (R-KS)
Rounds (R-SD)
Rubio (R-FL)
Sasse (R-NE)
Scott (R-SC)
Shelby (R-AL)
Sullivan (R-AK)
Thune (R-SD)
Tillis (R-NC)
Toomey (R-PA)
Wicker (R-MS)

The other four original “no” votes were cast by Senators no longer in the Senate today, as listed below:

Ayotte (R-NH) — defeated by Democrat Maggie Hassan
Coats (R-IN) — replaced by Republican Todd Young
Sessions (R-AL) — replaced by Republican Luther Strange (special election August 15)
Vitter (R-LA) — replaced by Republican John Kennedy

  1. Thank you for standing up. Murkowsi has been destructive to Alaska. We tried to displace her in the last election, sorry we failed.

  2. Why wait for the election? Let’s recall them now!

  3. In Dante’s “Inferno”, part of the eighth ring of hell is reserved for hypocrites. Murkowski and Capito could be enjoying each other’s company in torment.

  4. This list of supposedly servants of the people just gave away what we earned, the right to have what the rest of the civilized countries already have. And is going to give the money they took away from our kids and elders to the rich. I will make sure to post this list in every way possible so this so called servants don’t get voted in again. They just put back this country 50 years.

  5. They should have copied what Canada has done. Take the evil out, the insurances and offer the medicine companies the same that Canada and Europe pay. Unfortunately the “evil” has them by the know what.

  6. If they would do that EVERYONE would be covered at one third of cost and we would have money left for free college tuition and job training.

  7. francesco milito, your hyperbole is hilarious. And a great demonstration of your economic ignorance.

  8. Tell us what Caligula has in mind..
    .economically that is.

  9. True we would have about 800 thousand people with out a job, but we could afford to train them for new jobs.Is better than the alternative of 20 million without medical. Remember if they get sick we still have to pay for them.

    Essentially meaningless; “I was for it before I was against it” stuff. Voting to plan to discuss and debate to plan a plan they had 7-plus years to plan– and splitting for vacation.

  13. this is complete and utter madness

    Sorta like hopping on a plane and flying 2,200 miles 11 days after brain surgery – voting yea, then speechifying nay for 15 minutes, then flying another 2,200 miles back.

    Life is short as it is; why help make it shorter.
