WASHINGTON – Republican Senate leaders have delayed their plans to vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act, commonly reffered to as Obamacare, until after their July 4th holiday.

This action comes after it was announced Republican senators were invited to the White House where President Donald Trump was to try to get those GOP senators to vote for Trumpcare.

Up until today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) said it was necessary to approve the bill prior to the Congressional recess for the July 4th holiday.

The bill that would have major cuts to Medicaid and large tax cuts for the wealthy has met much resistance. Tuesday’s delay shows GOP Senate leaders lacked the necessary votes to approve the bill.
