CNN and other outlets are reporting now that there will be no vote tonight on the AHCA.
GOP source: no vote tonight on health care bill.

President Trump and Speaker Ryan couldn’t allow the bill to not pass, and it wasn’t going to. Today’s date was an arbitrary one, simply selected as the day to vote. No deadlines have been passed. But there will be no vote today. Negotiations continue?
As Speaker Ryan postponed the vote on Capitol Hill, President Trump told a group of truck drivers he was meeting with that he couldn’t meet with them for too long because he had to go “get votes.” And joked that if he spent too long in the meeting the AHCA might not pass by one vote and then he’d have to blame the truckers.
