In Major Blow To Trump, GOP Health Care Bill Vote Delayed
The bill faced opposition from the center and right within the party. And Trump, for all his efforts at deal-making, hasn't been able yet to secure the votes.
John Boehner, when he was speaker of the GOP-controlled House, once likened his job to keeping 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow.
President Trump and current House Speaker Paul Ryan are running into the same problem.
NPR’s Susan Davis reports that the long-promised Republican bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has been delayed. It was supposed to get a vote Thursday night, but it has been running into trouble — from both the right and the center.
