GOP Pulls Bill to Repeal Obamacare

The GOP decided to scrap health care bill, branded the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Friday afternoon after a number of Republicans voiced their opposition over the latest version of the bill. House Speaker Paul Ryan called off the vote after a meeting with Trump at the White House, where he expressed concern over the lack of votes for the new bill. President Trump presented an ultimatum on Thursday: Either the GOP votes for the health care bill, or Obamacare will not be repealed.

Spokesman Sean Spicer commented that Trump “left everything on the field.”
