GOP aides said on Tuesday that the Senate will not vote on the Graham-Cassidy bill, the Republican replacement to Obamacare, Business Insider reported.
Senators Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R., La.) decided not to vote on the measure after it was evident the bill would not get the needed votes to pass.
"Well to be clear, due to events under our control and not under out control, we do not have the votes," Cassidy said.
Graham said that Republicans will still pass the bill but more work has to be done before it is passed.
"We know what we're against," said Sen Graham. "We've had a hard time articulating what we're for."
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) said they have not given up.
"Look, we haven't given up on changing the American health care system, we're not going to do that this week," McConnell said. "But it still lies ahead of us."
