He thinks he has 51 votes to eliminate Obamacare in the Senate. I'm not sure if he does..

He has no thought about the consequence of such a move but, probably doesn't are. He'll have HIS medical coverage as he can afford it regardless. Nor is he proposing an alternative to Obamacare to replace it. What a flamer. He just wants Obamacare dead.

Luckily we don't have a Republican president who probably would veto it.

Grandstanding again. 51 isn't enough to stop a filibuster, much less override an inevitable veto.

It appears that a fillibuster for some reason, isn't an option and not mentioned in the article I read.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate will consider using a fast-track budget procedure to repeal some of Obamacare but declined to say when that may take place.
GOP leaders have not made a final decision on how exactly to use the powerful procedural tool, called reconciliation, which allows the Senate to avoid a filibuster and pass legislation with just a simple majority. Many Republicans, particularly the conservative wings in both chambers, would like to use the maneuver to attack Obamacare.
