Trump promises Obamacare replacement after Senate collapse | Daily Mail Online: President is predicting that a collapse of the Obamacare system will be the catalyst that propels Congress to action on a replacement
Fifty votes were needed to pass a Senate replacement bill but enough Republicans defected Monday night to doom it
Most likely scenario now is a straight 'repeal' vote that would take effect in two years, giving lawmakers time to craft a new system
Trump said Monday night that the GOP should repeal Obamacare first and 'start from a clean slate'
But now he's also predicting that even without a 'repeal' vote the current system will fail on its own
Trump also appears to be calling for the end of Senate rules that require 60-vote super-majorities to pass bills that don't impact the federal budget
