Celebrities Tear Into GOP, Senator John McCain Over Republican Health Care Vote

It was a huge win for Donald Trump on Tuesday as the Senate voted to begin a debate for replacing the Affordable Care Act, but Hollywood is not having it on social media.

50 senators and VP Mike Pence voted in favor of the debate, which will likely be a discussion on either amending or completely repealing Obamacare.

One notable "yes" vote came from Senator John McCain, who recently revealed that he underwent surgery for a brain cancer diagnosis. In a draft of the health care bill that appeared earlier last month, the bill would dramatically cut Medicaid coverage by about $840 billion.

After the vote, President Donald Trump released this statement.

"I applaud the Senate for taking a giant step to end the Obamacare nightmare. As this vote shows, inaction is not an option, and now the legislative process can move forward as intended to produce a bill that lowers costs and increases options for all Americans. The Senate must now pass a bill and get it to my desk so we can finally end the Obamacare disaster once and for all."
