Republican leaders on Friday were unsuccessful in getting enough votes to pass the GOP's ObamaCare replacement bill.

During a press conference this afternoon, House Speaker Paul Ryan said they "just couldn't quite get consensus today."

He said he felt it was wisest to pull the bill, instead of sending it to a vote.

Ryan said it is difficult moving from an opposition party to a governing party.

"We're feeling those growing pains today," he said.

He said Americans will now have ObamaCare "for the foreseeable future," and he predicts it will only get worse and worse.

Ryan says that now they are going to go fix "the rest of the tax code."
