Where does the House Freedom Caucus go from from here?

Led by Trump, the Republican's years-long obsession with repealing Obamacare on Friday instead turned into a testament to Obamacare's success.

He was referring to the advocacy group Club for Growth, the Heritage Group thinktank, and likely its advocacy offshoot Heritage Action, all conservative groups with influence on the members of the Freedom Caucus.

The gambit was straight out of a corporate deal-maker's playbook: President Donald Trump told House Republicans that it was now or never to repeal and replace Obamacare and demanded a vote by Friday.

Mr Trump lashed out at Democrats in Congress after the bill was withdrawn, blaming the opposition party for not backing his legislation.

It would be smart for Trump and Republicans to actually improve on the existing plan and put their stamp on it, but that's unlikely.

Trump's anti-Freedom Caucus tweet followed another Twitter burst on Saturday morning, in which he urged his Twitter followers to watch the Saturday night show of Jeanine Pirro, a Fox television show host and former prosecutor. "He failed to deliver the votes".

Priebus also shot down reports that Trump blames him.

The bill's failure could impact the GOP and Trump White House's ability to enact its agenda going forward, as Trump indicated he would now turn his focus to tax reform. "The people who are to blame are the people who would not vote yes".

You see where I'm going with this right?

Donald Trump has suffered a humiliating legislative defeat as Republicans were forced to pull their repeal of the Obamacare bill, prompting the US President to warn Americans that bad things are going to happen.

Meadows said Democrats shouldn't consider the fight over. He said Trump is willing to give Republicans who opposed the health-care bill another chance and thinks it's time for Republicans to come together and potentially get a few moderate Democrats to join them.

On NBC, Mulvaney added: "We haven't been able to change Washington in the first 65 days". I'd love to see it go well but it can't. Trump immediately picked up the phone, called the Washington Post, and said he was pulling the bill. I've been saying for the past year and a half, politically speaking, that the best thing we can do is let Obamacare explode.

The President, 70, addressed reporters in the White House soon after.

Mr. Trump repeatedly said that, if Obamacare were left in place, Democrats would come to him seeking repairs to the flawed health care law, under which costs have increased and choices decreased for many Americans.

He said he would be open to working with Democratic leaders on a replacement bill in the future. But he added: "The congressional leadership still wants to behave as if they are in a pre-Trump world - and Trump trusted them".

"Isn't that what he told everybody that we weren't going to pay it?" he continued.

The GOP health plan would have repealed almost $1 trillion in taxes that are part of the ACA and would have coupled those cuts with cuts to Medicaid to keep the budget deficit in check.
