Charleston, SC (WCBD)- Several South Carolina lawmakers have tweeted their reactions to the new health care bill being pulled from the House floor.

Senator Lindsey Graham said the next step is “Collapse and Replace,” saying that winning is repealing and replacing, and losing is pushing through a bad bill.

Meanwhile, Representative Jim Clyburn expressed relief, calling the Affordable Care Act the Civil Rights Act of the 21st century and recalling his mother’s issues with insurance when she fell ill.
