BREAKING: House Will Vote Friday On AHCA

For eight years, a leaderless Republican Party has rallied around its passionate opposition to President Barack Obama and a rigid devotion to small government, free markets and fiscal discipline.

The Associated Press is reporting that the vote on the health care bill will now take place on Friday.

But who knows if that deadline will stick, or if it will be postponed yet again. It’s clear that Republicans are having a difficult time finding support for it to pass among their own. This health care bill is not what many voters had in mind when they said “repeal and replace” Obamacare.

FOX News reports that President Trump wants a Friday vote, or else:

White House officials said late Thursday President Trump wants the House to vote Friday on the legislation to begin dismantling ObamaCare, and if it fails, he is “done with health care,” and ready to move on to tax reform, a source told Fox News.

“My understanding is he’s going to get it,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Trump and Republican leaders had spent much of the day scrambling to get both moderates and conservatives on board with the increasingly unpopular legislation.

We’ll see what actually transpires tomorrow. For now, this seems like a waiting game, and a fragile one at that.
