Senate Republicans Take First Step to Repeal Obamacare
Senate Republicans takes their first steps in realizing their goal of repealing Obamacare. It happened at the end of a marathon vote-a-rama -- an all-nighter of consecutive votes.
The law doesn't repeal the Affordable Care Act, but Fox News reports it starts the budget reconciliation process. The process cannot be filibustered -- so it can pass with a simple majority. CNN reports the law is a budget blueprint that GOP lawmakers call the Obamacare "repeal resolution."
NBC News reports Democrats against the action protested during the vote, making speeches about people they say will be harmed by the repeal of Obamacare.
