No Repeal for 'Obamacare' in Humiliating Defeat for Trump

In a humiliating failure, President Donald Trump and GOP leaders pulled their bill to repeal "Obamacare" off the House floor Friday when it became clear it would fail badly — after seven years of nonstop railing against the law.

Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., say they will soon turn their attention to the first major re-write of the tax code in more than 30 years. But they will have to do it without the momentum of victory on health care. Just as important, the loss on health care will deprive Republicans of $1 trillion in tax cuts.
