In a press conference yesterday addressing the health care vote, Representative Rodney Davis expressed that he felt the GOP bill had been thoroughly negotiated and was a good replacement for the Affordable Care Act.
 
He stated that if the government does nothing, the state of Illinois will suffer financially.
 
 
Senator Dick Durbin has been critical of the bill, while Davis calls the system that Durbin supports a "collapsing" one.
 
 
Despite Davis' feelings, the bill was pulled and the vote canceled by Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, after the bill failed to garner enough support from both sides of the aisle. CBSnews.com reported, "The health care vote has now been called off, after Republican leaders and the White House tried and failed to win sufficient support for the GOP legislation to undo Obamacare."
