In a shocking vote on the Senate floor, Republicans' attempt to introduce a so-called "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act was shot down thanks to three votes: Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and John McCain (R-Arizona). The bill would have taken away healthcare from 16 million people and denied funding to Planned Parenthood—but now it's not happening.

The vote happened in the wee hours of Friday morning, which is prime time for people to react to crazy news on Twitter. And the Internet did not disappoint. Check out some of the best reactions to the big political news of the day.
