In a major political setback for the Trump government, the proposed bill, which seeks to replace former President Barack Obama’s healthcare system, collapsed on Tuesday after two Republicans opposed the controversial reform in its current form.

With Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas breaking the ranks, the Republicans cannot the muster the majority required to pass the bill in the 100-member Senate, notes the BBC.

Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate will soon be voting to repeal Obamacare, following which a new Healthcare Plan will be worked on from the scratch, writes The Guardian
