Without a question, one of the biggest opponents of the disastrous Obamacare law is Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R).
Rubio campaign twice to fully repeal and replace President Obama’s legacy legislation, but he and his colleagues in the U.S. Senate have failed in achieving that goal.
The Republican redux effort to repeal Obamacare is all-but dead on arrival in the senate, as four GOP legislators have now stated that they would oppose the Cassidy-Graham healthcare proposal.
Rubio has not joined the senate ‘Nay’ voters, yet, nor has he signaled if he would support the latest measure to scrub the troublesome healthcare law.
In scouring his social media platforms, aside from his daily Bible scripture postings and updates on Hurricanes Maria and Irma relief efforts, Rubio has been very quiet in regards to the ongoing healthcare debate.

Unfortunately for Republicans, that has not been the case for Florida’s other senator, Bill Nelson.
Thanks @SenatorCollins. We should be focused on finding real bipartisan fixes to the ACA, not this bill that cuts $1 trillion from Medicaid.

Nelson too has been pushing hurricane relief efforts, but has also been paying close attention to the developing healthcare debate, asserting his opposition to the GOP plan to replace President Obama’s healthcare law.
The Cassidy-Graham healthcare repeal bill is DOA, and so could the Republican Party’s chances to retain control of both chambers of congress after the 2018 and 2020 election cycles.
