Democrats react to the collapse of the Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer saying "So much for 'The Art of the Deal.'"

"In my life, I've never seen an administration as incompetent as the one in the White House today," Schumer said Friday afternoon, according to ABC News. "They can't get their story straight, and today we've learned they can't count votes and they can't close a deal."

Schumer's counterpart in the House, Nancy Pelosi, said at a press conference that "Today is a great day for our country, it's a victory – what happened on the floor is a victory for the American people, for our seniors, for people with disabilities, for our children, for our veterans."

Former presidential candidate, and independent though he caucuses with the Democrats, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said "The defeat of the disastrous Trump-Ryan health care bill is a major victory for working families and everyone who stood up in opposition."

President Donald Trump blamed Democrats for the bill's failure, saying, "we had no Democratic support," in the Oval Office after the announcement, according to Fox News.

He added that "they weren't going to give us a single vote," but even members of the GOP were celebrating.

"I applaud House conservatives for keeping their word to the American people and standing up against Obamacare Lite," said Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, in a statement. "I look forward to passing full repeal of Obamacare in the very near future."
