This was a vote to ELIMINATE the Affordable Care Act (ACA):

BULLETIN:   A belabored, useless vote was called in the U.S. Senate today (Sunday): it was an effort by the GOP led Majority, and Senator McConnell (R-Kentucky), the Senate Majority Leader.  The Result:  This was a vote to ELIMINATE the Affordable Care Act (ACA): …sometimes referred to as “Obamacare”.  A 3/5ths Majority being required to pass the Senate, on this kind of bill, Republicans failed.  Nonetheless, this is “showmanship”, in the run-up to the 2016 Presidential and Congressional Elections. While many think that the U.S. Supreme Court has “saved” the ACA”, that is simply not the case: making your vote in 2016, for some with chronic diseases, a life and death vote: hard to contemplate, I know, this far out.  (July 26, 2015).  Full-Stop.
