President Trump today pulled the healthcare bill after it came up short on votes. Paul Ryan did a news conference shortly afterwards and he said, ‘Obamacare is the law of the land, it’s going to remain the law of the land until it’s replaced’.
Paul Ryan was nervous during the news conference. I mean he’s only had several years to come up with a viable replacement to Obamacare…
Paul Ryan: “I don’t know what else to say other than Obamacare is the law of the land. It’s going to remain the law of the land until it’s replaced. We did not have quite the votes to replace this law uh and so yeah we’re gonna be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future .
I don’t know how long it’s gonna take us to replace this law. My worry is um Obamacare is going to be getting even worse….”

Before any other bill is worked on, Paul Ryan has to go as Speaker. 7 1/2 years and this is what they deliver. Time's up. @realDonaldTrump
