House delays vote on healthcare bill -MSNBC

WASHINGTON, March 23 (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday delayed a vote on legislation to begin dismantling Obamacare as President Donald Trump and leaders in Congress labored to find enough support among fellow Republicans for their version of a new federal healthcare policy, MSNBC reported, citing multiple House leadership sources

The reported delay marked a setback for Trump, who is seeking his first major legislative victory and who campaigned on a promise to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s landmark law. (Reporting by Tim Ahmann; Editing by Bill Trott and Eric Walsh)
