Vice President Mike Pence just scored a major win that made Republicans proud and the supporters extremely happy. It did not, however, satisfied the liberals, that were hoping for a different outcome in the situation.

What Pence actually did was to cast his vote Tuesday as the deciding factor in a 50-50 tie.

What did he vote on, you might ask? The repeal of Obamacare of course.

Donald Trump made it very clear to Senate that it is high time they got down to business and find a suitable solution for Obama’s failing health care bill. Shortly after, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell initiated a Senate lockdown so things could move up a notch. “With a surprise election comes great opportunities,” he said.

There were rebels in the case, that’s for sure, and some of the most outspoken included Sens. Susan Collins, R-Me., and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska.

Missing the entire vote was John McCain, who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. However, we are all aware where he stands on the subject, right? 80, who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, missed last week’s session while he was recovering from a procedure to remove a blood clot above his left eye.

However, there were some that agreed to carry on with the process, including Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.

“Today, I will vote to begin debate to repeal and replace Obamacare,” Capito stated. “As this process advances on the Senate floor, I will continue to make decisions that are in the best interest of West Virginians.”

The first time the Obamacare repeal became a threat to liberals and Obama’s heritage, they began opposing whichever solution was presented by Senate Republicans.

Still, Mike Pence was the much-needed tie-breaker in the case, which certainly puts things in a whole different perspective.
