10 GOP senators pretend to have serious concerns about Trumpcare

MP   |   Published June 25, 2017

Mitch McConnell needs 50 votes + Mike Pence to jam Trumpcare through the Senate, after which it will be rewritten by lobbyists in conference committee.

That means McConnell can only lose 2 out of these 10 Republican senators pretending to have serious concerns…

Senator
Public position
Actual position
What he/she wants
Susan Collins (Republican-ME)
Likely NO ??? Needs actual concessions.
Ted Cruz (Trumpist-TX)
Noncommittal. YES Wants to be seen as getting “concessions” before eventually supporting the bill.
Jeff Flake (Republican-AZ)
Noncommittal YES if vote needed 1 of only 2 vulnerable Republican senators in the 2018 cycle. As such, he does not want to be on record supporting Trumpcare.
Dean Heller (Trumpist-NV)
Likely NO ??? 1 of only 2 vulnerable Republican senators in the 2018 cycle. As such, he does not want to be on record supporting Trumpcare.
Lisa Murkowski (Republican-AK)
Noncommittal YES Wants to be seen as getting “concessions” before eventually supporting the bill.
Ron Johnson (Trumpist-WI)
Noncommittal. YES Wants to be seen as getting “concessions” before eventually supporting the bill.
Mike Lee (Republican-UT)
Noncommittal. YES if vote needed Would prefer to vote NO to preserve his Constitutionalist schtick, but will vote YES if he is the deciding vote.
John McCain (Republican-AZ)
Noncommittal. YES Wants to be seen as getting “concessions” before eventually supporting the bill.
Rand Paul (Republican-KY)
Likely NO. YES if vote needed Would prefer to vote NO to preserve his libertarian schtick, but will vote YES if he is the deciding vote.
Rob Portman (Republican-OH)
Noncommittal. YES Wants to be seen as getting “concessions” before eventually supporting the bill.

Whether its this week or next, Trumpcare should pass w/ 50 votes + Pence– allowing Dean Heller + 1 other lucky Republican to vote ‘no’.
