Washington, April 28: Despite a furious push, House Republican leaders were uble to wrangle the votes necessary to move forward on their latest effort to repeal Obamacare, denying President Dold Trump a major legislative victory during his first 100 days in office. Speaker Paul Ryan and his top lieutents decided during a late night huddle in the Capitol that they still do not have the votes to pass the stalled Affordable Care Act, CNN reported. The vote on the bill was delayed until next week. At least 15 House Republicans remain solidly opposed to the bill, with another 20 leaning no or still undecided, according to GOP lawmakers and aides. “We are not voting on healthcare tomorrow,” Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters upon emerging from the meeting on Thursday. “We’re still educating members.” (IANS)
