To repeal and to replace Obamacare, White House will vote Thursday on the Republican bill. This vote setting up a moment that could give President Donald Trump the significant legislative victory he has been seeking.
On Wednesday the dramatic and long-awaited announcement put to an end a flurry of speculation about whether the Republican health care bill would come up on the House for a vote or collapse one more time in another embarrassment.
An 11th hour deal announced earlier in the day renewed momentum as leaders furiously lobbied undecided or skeptical lawmakers on the plan that had been teetering on the brink of collapse.
On Wednesday night, the bill advanced out of the Rules committee. And House leaders have continued to make clear that if everything goes their way, their preference was to have a vote Thursday. But they were also insistent: that they would not call a vote unless they believed it would pass.
