Just so you can see who they are. The flip-floppers are in the article.
Receiving mention in it, Susan Collins is a more steadfast RINO. Here is her face~

    Quotes in an email from Ken Cuccinelli, President, Senate Conservatives Fund.

    An equal fraud was calling the Senate bill a repeal of Obamacare, which it certainly was not. But the Republican collectivists progressively destroying our health care opposed even a delayed repeal of a few items. (But he didn't say that.)


    These Republicans have lost their way and we can't keep making excuses for their betrayals.
    LISA MURKOWSKI (R-AK)
    THEN: "This law is not affordable for anyone in Alaska. That is why I will support the bill that repeals the ACA and wipes out its harmful impacts."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal
    DEAN HELLER (R-NV)
    THEN: "The repeal of this law will not only reduce federal spending, but it will also allow Congress to address problems within the current health care system."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal
    SHELLEY MOORE CAPITO (R-WV)
    THEN: "I have consistently voted to repeal and replace this disastrous health care law, and I am glad that a repeal bill will finally reach the president's desk."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal
    LAMAR ALEXANDER (R-TN)
    THEN: "Obamacare was an historic mistake, and should be repealed and replaced with step-by-step reforms that transform the health care delivery system."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal
    SUSAN COLLINS (R-ME)
    THEN: "I believe that we made - that Congress made - a real error in passing Obamacare, we should repeal the law so that we can start over."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal
    JOHN McCAIN (R-AZ)
    THEN: "It is clear that any serious attempt to improve our health care system must begin with a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal
    ROB PORTMAN (R-OH)
    THEN: "[Obamacare] is fundamentally flawed. I do think we ought to delay ... and then we've got to repeal this thing and start over."
    NOW: Voted Against Repeal

    I wouldn't have liked it if Obamacare-Lite had passed anyway, so the RINO's didn't really mess anything up. (McCain was just posturing to achieve "statesman" status by thwarting Republicans efforts, once again pleasing his masters in the mainstream press.) That bill wouldn't have survived conference committee with the House anyway. Too many Conservative votes would be lost because the bill is too weak. The best thing to do now is to just watch Obamacare implode and not do anything to save it.

    Only three of them voted against the "skinny" Obamacare repeal, which would have repealed the individual and employer "mandates". The Democrats all voted against it. If not for additional anti-abortion language in the bill, both the Democrats and the RINOs would have had trouble explaining their "no" votes to constituents, and a few Democrats might actually have voted "yes".

    With no support from Democrats, the best hope is to separately put each feature of Obamacare up for a roll-call vote in the Senate. This will fprce the Democrats and the RINOs to publicly cast their votes on Obamacare's most unpopular features, and be prepared to explain to their constituents why they voted the way they did.
