Twitter's reaction to the failed GOP healthcare vote was savage


Americans waited in anticipation for the vote on the bill that would begin the repeal of Obamacare (the Affordable Healthcare Act). Minutes before the vote, House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled the GOP bill after not securing enough votes within his own party to pass it.  Because Republicans hold the majority in the House, the bill didn't need a single Democratic vote to pass. 

After it was announced that the bill was withdrawn, the meme floodgates opened, and the jokes poured in on Twitter.

And Twitter was savage AF.
