#butthurt (CNN) House Speaker Paul Ryan conceded the biggest defeat of his political career Friday: Republicans have failed to repeal and replace Obamacare.
And after nearly three full months into the year, he now has to face a head-on a challenge that is likely to haunt his tenure as speaker for the foreseeable future: seemingly irreconcilable differences among his fellow Republicans. "Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains," Ryan told reporters Friday. "And well, we're feeling those growing pains today.""This is how governing works when you're in the majority. We need to get 216 people to agree with each other to write legislation. Not 210. Not 215," Ryan said at Friday's press conference. "We were close but we didn't have 216 people. That's how legislating works."https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/03/24/politics/paul-ryan-health-care/index.html
