Celebs React After Trump's Health Care Bill Pulled by GOP
President Trump is delaying a vote on the American Health Care Act, the bill that the Republicans proposed in an effort to repeal Obamacare.
The GOP realized that they did not have enough votes to pass the bill and this puts a major setback for Trump‘s plans to take down Obamacare.
“We came really close today but we came up short,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said after the decision was announced. “This is a disappointing day for us.”
“We’re going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future,” Ryan added.
Celebs are excited by the development and lots of them have taken to Twitter to express their joy over the news. Read a bunch of tweets below.
Thank you to those house republicans who were brave enough to know that party line isn't an excuse for bad legislation for all Americans.

Historically unpopular, despised president, under cloud of scandal and suspicion, fails to strongarm passage of unpopular bill.
