UPDATE: White House Says Vote Set at 3:30; Rumor: GOP Healthcare Bill Could Get Pulled Altogether, Speaker Ryan Heads to The White House

UPDATE II: President Trump has asked for the bill to be pulled just moments before the vote.

UPDATE: White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says the vote will be held at 3:30 p.m. 

***Original Post***

As President Trump continues to apply pressure to skeptical House members currently planning to vote against the American Health Care Act, Speaker Paul Ryan headed to the White House Friday morning in a last ditch meeting as desperation for the bill to survive sets in. 

Meanwhile, as the vote numbers stand now the bill will die on the floor which may prompt House leadership to pull the legislation altogether. At least 32 Republicans, both very conservative and moderate, are currently expected to vote no. Ryan can only afford to lose 21 votes. 

Needless to say, Ryan's visit could well be to tell the President this vote and this bill aren't happening.
