To the archives they go.
A group of Senate pages were spotted riding the Capitol subway system Friday with copies of the Republican legislation that was defeated during the party’s attempt to repeal parts of the 2010 health care law. The pages — high school students who spend a semester in Washington, D.C. — were delivering the copies of the bill to the Senate document room.
Early Friday morning, the chamber defeated a “skinny” repeal bill, 49-51, that was the GOP’s attempt to pass a health care measure to eventually conference with the House. GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, John McCain of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska joined all 48 Democrats and independents to reject the bill.
