Repeal dies: Obamacare remains in effect

(CNBC) — Two more Republican senators said Monday they will oppose the current Republican health-care bill — enough to doom its passage, for now.

In messages posted to Twitter, Sens. Jerry Moran, R-Ks., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, became the third and fourth GOP senators to say they would not support their party’s Obamacare replacement plan as written. They said they would not even back a motion to proceed — a procedural vote that would start debate on the bill.

The GOP, which holds 52 seats in the Senate, had already seen two defections and could not afford a third.
