The Senate will certainly never vote down Obamacare as long as Republicans are in the minority (which can be changed), and it’ll certainly never happen as long as some of those Republicans are the Democrats’ best friend.
@jaketapper who ever said McCain was ever rational? He needs to switch parties.
