House Democrats celebrate the GOP’s failure on health care bill

House Democrats took a “victory” lap Friday after their Republican colleagues pulled the plug on their plan to scrap Obamacare.

“Today is a great day for our country,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat. “What happened on the floor is a victory for the American people.”

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, pulled the bill Friday after it was clear that President Trump and House GOP leaders had fallen short of securing enough support to pass their plan to overhaul the health care system.

It marked the second time in as many day that Republicans had to scrap their plan to hold a vote on their health care bill.

“It is pretty exciting for us,” Mrs. Pelosi said.
