Facing certain defeat, GOP pulls American Health Care Act
Facing certain defeat in the House of Representatives, President Donald Trump asked Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis) to pull the legislation rather than see it defeated in the House.
“We are going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future,” Ryan said. “I spoke with the President a little while ago and I told him the best thing to do was to pull this bill and he agreed with that. I will not sugar coat this, this is a disappointing day for us. Doing big things is hard,” Ryan said.
