Trump: Heath Care Bill Withdrawn Due to Lack Of Support From Democrats

The president said that he expected Obamacare to implode eventually.

Speaking at a  press conference right after Republican leaders  abruptly pulled their troubled health care overhaul bill off the House floor, president Trump said that he would be ‘open’ to tackling health care again if ‘Obamacare’ law implodes.

 The Republicans withdrew their health care bill after realizing that they were short of votes, and eager to avoid a humiliating defeat for President Donald Trump and GOP leaders.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., withdrew the legislation after Trump called him and asked him to halt debate without a vote, according to Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong.

 “We came really close today, but we came up short”, Ryan said at a separate press conference.

Just a day earlier, Trump had demanded a House vote and said if the measure lost, he would move on to other issues.
