WASHINGTON: US Republicans failed spectacularly on Friday in their latest effort to dismantle Obamcare, leaving the party in stunned disarray and President Donald Trump’s dreams of repealing his predecessor’s health reforms on ice.
The extraordinarily tense vote – held in the dead of night – came down to the wire, with Republican Senator John McCain, only recently diagnosed with brain cancer, casting the deciding vote against the legislation.
“This was a disappointment, a disappointment indeed,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told colleagues after the vote.
This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
