There is so much going on in this clip. I can’t stop watching.
While you were sleeping, Senate Republicans held a late-night vote to try to pass their last-ditch effort to repeal Obamacare — but it all failed when Sen. John McCain bucked the party line and voted against the bill.

The skinny repeal “offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens,” McCain said.
Here’s video of the exact moment McCain strolled into the Senate chamber at 1:29 a.m. and voted no with a thumbs down.
