|Speaker of the House Paul Ryan|
Lacking the necessary votes to pass the proposed replacement for the Affordable Care Act, today’s vote on the American Health Care Act has been cancelled by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
Earlier today, White House press secretary Sean Spicer declared with confidence there was no need for a “Plan B” because the legislation would pass tonight.
Q: Is there a backup plan if the health bill doesn’t pass tonight?
Spicer: “No. It’s gonna pass. So that’s it.” pic.twitter.com/fUo8BBnBPU
