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.
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.
GOP rep told me this AM he believed bill would be pulled -- leadership wouldn't put it to a vote and see it go down. No reason to. https://t.co/N551U3Osam— Eliana Johnson (@elianayjohnson) March 24, 2017
Wow. @DanaBashCNN reporting Ryan is going to show Trump the votes and tell him they don't have them. He'll ask what Trump wants to do now— MJ Lee (@mj_lee) March 24, 2017
