Cornyn: Democrats Refuse to Listen

The Senate vote on the Republican effort to repeal the Obamacare law failed to obtain the 60 votes required for passage.
There is no doubt that Republicans are listening to the American people—and heard their message in November. We promised to fight to repeal this unconstitutional bill, and we kept our promise. The people have spoken, the courts have spoken, Republicans have spoken, but unfortunately Democrats still refuse to listen. The best thing we could do to stimulate job growth would be to repeal this onerous, misguided bill and replace it with common sense reforms that increase access, lower costs and unleash the burdens it places on private-sector job creators.
