U.S. House speaker tells Trump healthcare bill lacks votes -CNN

WASHINGTON, March 24 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan told President Donald Trump on Friday that there are not enough votes to pass Republicans’ healthcare bill, CNN reported, citing a Republican source.

Ryan, at a meeting with Trump at the White House, is seeking guidance from Trump about possible next steps, according to CNN. Republican leaders had been planning a vote later on Friday on the measure, which seeks to dismantle Obamacare. (Writing by Susan Heavey; Editing by Chris Reese)
