At a campaign-style rally in Youngstown, Ohio, last night, President Trump boasted a significant Republican victory in repealing and replacing Obamacare in a Senate vote earlier in the day. Although the vote was a direct hit against Obamacare, party leaders said it was meant simply to authorize discussion and debate on certain aspects of the health-care law, which went into effect in 2010. With no Democrats supporting the vote, Republicans split evenly on it. Vice President Mike Pence broke the deadlock with a “yes” vote favoring further debate.
