Then there was a clean repeal vote. No replacement, just repeal. This time, Collins, Murkowski and Heller were joined by John McCain (politics aside, prayers for McCain), Lamar Alexander, Shelley Moore Capito and my old boss, Rob Portman, all voting against that one, despite the fact the repeal would not have gone into effect for two long years, plenty of time to come up with a better replacement..
