"Obamacare is the law of the land, and it will remain the law of the land until it’s replaced," Ryan said.

House Republican leaders and the White House failed to win over a bloc of conservative members who thought the measure didn’t go far enough in repealing the Affordable Care Act.

"Moving from an opposition party to a governing party comes with growing pains,” Ryan said. “We’re feeling those growing pains today. We came really close today, but we came up short," Ryan said.
