Republican lawmakers, seeing that they don’t have the votes, postponed voting on President Trump’s healthcare bill, which was supposed to happen on Thursday. But the president is demanding a vote on Friday.
Not only that, Trump says that if his “repeal and replace” bill fails, he will just leave Obamacare as the law of the land.
UPDATE: Lacking the votes to pass it, the Republican leadership pulled the bill. Speaker Paul Ryan said that we will just have to live with Obamacare. President Trump blamed the Democrats, all of whom voted against his American Health Care Act, saying that we will just have to watch Obamacare “explode.”
