Senate Republicans decided not to vote on yet another attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare on Tuesday, finally dropping the bill that many in Hollywood previously spoke out against.

Some of the most vocal opponents of the Graham-Cassidy bill celebrated their victory on Twitter on Monday, including Jimmy Kimmel, who rallied his viewers against the bill in a very public fight on behalf of his newborn son.

“Thanks to all who stood up and spoke out from this happy guy and his less-fortunate friends,” Kimmel wrote on Twitter, sharing a photo of his son, Billy with the hashtag, #GoodbyeGrahamCassidy.

Republican senators announced on Monday that they would not bring the bill to the floor because they couldn’t gather enough votes to pass it once Senator Susan Collins of Maine, John McCain of Arizona and Rand Paul of Kentucky came out in opposition.

“Today’s victory is glorious but the fight will continue until every American has taxpayer-funded free-at-point-of-use healthcare,” tweeted “Catastrophe” star and co-creator Rob Delaney.
