BREAKING NEWS: Health Care Bill Vote Canceled For Today

Trump made what he called a final offer, and arch-conservatives rejected it.

The House Republican leaders have abruptly postponed the planned vote on the Republican  health care bill Thursday afternoon as they struggled to find sufficient support to pass it.  They have been advised that procedural votes on the bill will still be held tonight and that a vote on the bill could still happen tomorrow.

The voting had been due to start at 4pm but was pushed back to an unknown time as the Freedom Caucus of conservative Republicans failed to be won over by last-minute changes offered by the White House.

Senators were informed by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that a vote might not even be held in the House before Monday.  At the time the vote was being canceled, Trump was boasting he could get the vote passed on Thursday.
