Twitter's best reactions to President Trump pulling the health care bill

Due to a shortage of votes Friday, the vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act was postponed, after President Trump asked House Speaker Paul Ryan to pull the "Obamacare" repeal bill from the House floor because it lacked enough votes to pass.

"Obamacare is the law of the land, it will remain the law of the land until it's replaced. We are going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future," Ryan explained. "I told him that the best thing that I think to do is to pull this bill and he agreed with that decision."

Introduced earlier this month, the bill, dubbed the "American Health Care Act," was received with staunch criticism from both Democrats and some members of GOP.

Critics of Trump and Ryan critics took to Twitter to delight in the bill's failure.
