House vote on health-care bill cancelled

The U.S. House of Representatives today cancelled an expected floor vote on H.R. 1628—the American Health Care Act of 2017. Future consideration of the bill by the House is unclear at this point. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told reporters this afternoon that the Affordable Care Act “is the law of the land” and that it will remain in place “for the foreseeable future.”
