WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement after the vote on repealing ObamaCare, which was defeated by the Democrat majority in the U.S. Senate today:

“Very rarely do we have the chance to fix a mistake like we did today with this vote on the repeal of President Obama’s burdensome health care bill.

“Voters in Missouri and nationwide sent a clear message last fall that they wanted their leaders in Washington to repeal and replace this law. I’m deeply disappointed that my colleagues across the aisle refused to listen to that clear message, and instead voted to defend this bill, which two federal courts have already deemed unconstitutional.

“Americans deserve a health care plan that cuts costs, increases access, and helps spur job creation, and I will continue to call for the repeal and replacement of this flawed legislation.”
