Democrats have led the generic ballot, which measures which party's candidates a voter plans to support, all of 2018, often by double digits.
Facing the prospect of a tough midterm election that could sway control of the House, McConnell warned that Democrats will pay a political price if they win and then use their majority to dig into investigating Trump next year. That makes the series of events a largely symbolic vote aimed at forcing moderate Republicans to possibly take a politically hard vote on the record. "They do not have to provide essential health benefits like hospitalization, prescription drugs and maternity care".
"It was a disgraceful situation brought about by people who are evil", Trump said.
In an interview with The Associated Press, McConnell disputed President Donald Trump's prediction that Alaskans "will never forgive" Murkowski and that she'll "never recover" politically after bucking her party on Kavanaugh.
Collins cited the lack of protections for those with pre-existing conditions in a statement explaining her vote.
"This reckless move could drive up health-care costs and enable big insurance companies to discriminate against Nevadans who have pre-existing medical conditions", Rosen said. At the same time, we can not ignore the fact that many individuals lack an affordable health insurance option. At least one congressional Republican has asked why men should pay for plans that include prenatal coverage and maternity care. "But I believe this flaw can be addressed without jeopardizing protections for individuals with preexisting conditions".

The Congressional Review Act is a law that Republicans have used extensively since Trump came into office to overturn Obama-era regulations.
Murkowski, who isn't up for re-election until 2022, tells reporters that her "barometer is not necessarily what the president says but what the people of Alaska say". Republicans have promoted them as a low-priced option for strapped consumers after years of steadily rising premiums, which they blame on Obama's law, and GOP candidates will be happy to use Wednesday's vote to make that point.
However, McConnell has been highly critical of what he calls the "mob" of protesters who swarmed the Capitol confronting senators over the Kavanaugh vote.
The vote was also aimed at refocusing people away from the Senate's nasty battle over confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, which both sides say has transformed indifferent conservative voters into motivated ones - for now.
"The Trump Administration is rewriting the rules on guaranteed health care protections that millions of Americans depend on".
"I can just see it just from traveling around the country in the last few days, traveling around Wisconsin, the Republican base is definitely animated after this", Ryan said.
