Democratic Health Care Measure Fails in Senate

Senate Democrats lost a long shot battle to stop the Trump administration's expansion of short-term health care plans.  The measure was one vote short of a majority.

It tied 50-50, with Republican Sen.

Susan Collins voting in line with the Democrats.

The Trump administration's short-term health care plans were promoted as a way to provide cheaper health care coverage.

But Democrats oppose the plans because they don't follow Obamacare mandates, which means they don't have to cover pre-existing conditions or provide comprehensive coverage The measure wasn't likely to pass, and even if it did, it didn't have a good chance of making past the Republican-led House.

But bringing up the vote potentially serves another purpose: forcing Republicans to publicly acknowledge their views on the less expansive health care plans right ahead of midterms.  Open enrollment for the plans began this month.
