Tech News Keywords: , , , , ,

Stocks erased much of an afternoon loss and ended mixed after the Republican-backed health care reform bill was pulled because of a lack of support in Congress. The market still closed out its worst week since the election Friday. Several health care companies rose as the bill’s prospects worsened throughout the day. Hospital operator Community Health Systems soared 9.7 percent. The Standard & Poor’s 500 slipped 2 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,343. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 59 points, or 0.3 percent, to 20,596. The Nasdaq gained 11 points, or 0.2 percent, to 5,828. More stocks fell than rose on the New York Stock Exchange.

President Donald Trump, who quite literally wrote the book on the art of the deal, has lost the first major negotiation of his presidency over the American Health Care Act. And it was his final strategic move that may have pushed the bill over the cliff. After tense negotiations with the House Freedom Caucus over the particulars of the bill Thursday, Trump called for an end to the bargaining and issued the reticent Republicans an ultimatum: Pass this bill, or Obamacare stays. “At some point, you either have a deal or you don’t,” said press secretary Sean Spicer Friday, explaining the president’s state of mind.

At a rally in Kentucky last week styled after President Donald Trump’s boisterous campaign events, the president’s supporters donned his now ubiquitous “Make America Great Again” ball cap and waved signs that proclaimed: “Promises made, promises kept.” In Trump’s first true test of his mettle as a prodigious dealmaker, the president failed to deliver on his pledge to quickly and decisively repeal Obamacare. The president reportedly asked House Republicans to pull the bill just before it was supposed to go up for a vote. The move to scrap the bill minutes before lawmakers were to vote marked a stunning defeat for Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), both brought together by their apparent disdain for Obamacare and long-held promise …

The legislation would repeal much of former President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law, including its requirement that people buy policies. This story will be updated.  Share this:
