WASHINGTON — House Speaker Paul Ryan told President Trump Friday that he doesn’t have the votes to pass the GOP health care plan, according to a new report.
Ryan went to the White House and was “not delivering good news,” according to CNN.
House Republicans need 216 votes to repeal and replace ObamaCare, but were 25 to 28 short as of Thursday night.
WASHINGTON — House Republicans on Monday released their long-awaited plan for unraveling former President Barack Obama’s health care law, a package that would scale back the government’s role in health care and likely leave more Americans uninsured.
House committees planned to begin voting on the 123-page legislation Wednesday, launching what could be the year’s defining battle in Congress.
GOP success is by no means a slam dunk. In perhaps their riskiest political gamble, the plan is expected to cover fewer than the 20 million people insured under Obama’s overhaul, including many residents of states carried by President Donald Trump in November’s election.
