Thursday vote on GOP health care bill canceled


GOP leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives have canceled a scheduled Thursday night vote on a plan to repeal and replace President Barack Obama‘s signature health care law, a Republican aid confirmed to Alabama Today.

The decision came after conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus failed to strike a deal on the bill in a meeting with President Donald Trump Thursday at the White House.

North Carolina-Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, told reporters while no deal had been made today, he was still hopeful one ultimately would be.

“I am very hopeful we can find a way to yes,” said Meadows of a future deal.
