Trump Administration and GOP forced to delay vote on disastrous TrumpCare, again.
President Donald Trump had backed the bill, called the American Health Care Act, and initially demanded that it go to a vote, but changed his mind when House leaders concluded they lacked the votes to pass it. They ended up yanking it from the House floor.
Now House Republicans are trying to garner support for a revised version of the bill, and the White House reportedly was privately pushing for a vote before Saturday, in the hopes of accomplishing something on the legislative front within the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency. But House leaders have delayed a vote until next week at the earliest.
