NO VOTE; NO REPEAL
The braggart president who said no one makes deals as good as he makes deals and no one can negotiate as well as he can negotiate just flopped out. Bigly.
The hideous Trump-Ryancare bill has been pulled
At least 31 Republicans were ready to vote NO.
The Republicans didn't have the votes for a bill that had only 17% support from the American people.
There was no political path forward for them.
The Republicans have been talking about repealing and replacing the ACA for 7 1/2 years and when the rubber hit the road it turned out they had no replacement that the American people liked, and so there will be no repeal.
Somewhere there is a former president with a YUUUUGE smile on his face.
The Art of the Deal was a big, fat FAIL.
Trump tells Washington Post's Robert Costa Health Care Bill "over." Will not come to floor for a long time, maybe a year, if ever.
