Health Care vote, but nobody knows what they're going to vote on

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-25/senate-gop-set-to-rol...

FTFA:
"Senate Republican leaders and President Donald Trump appear determined to begin a floor debate Tuesday on repealing Obamacare in a highly unorthodox way -- without lawmakers knowing what they’ll be voting on or where it might end up.

It’s unclear whether they have the 50 votes needed to begin considering a version of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s replacement bill or a stripped-down bill that would repeal much of Obamacare with a two-year delay."
.....
"AARP, the powerful lobby group that represents older Americans, urged the Senate to reject the measure and said it would communicate to members in key states how their senators voted.

“We will report to all 38 million AARP members how their Senators vote, via ads, our print publications, social media and more,” the group said Monday night on Twitter."

If the bill (or whatever they're voting on) fails to pass, is that still considered, "winning"?
If it passes and the AARP supports the opponents of whoever voted for it, is that also "winning"?
In any event, clearly too much winning for me.

Republican leadership is pulling a Pelosi after all. Got to vote for it to see what's in it.

“I don't have a clue what we're gonna be voting on,” said Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.).

So much for running things differently. ha ha..

What I love is Pelosi ("we've gotta vote on it to find out what's in it") complaining about it.

Is anyone in D.C. not a hypocrite?

I know one thing it's not going to be: a repeal of Obamacare.
