President Donald Trump, the author of the best-selling book, "The Art of the Deal," is about to see his deal-making abilities ratified in a legislative showdown on the House floor — or dramatically rebuffed.
Republican House leaders delayed a planned vote Thursday on a bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," because they lacked the votes. The delay was a stinging setback for President Donald Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. After meeting behind closed doors with Trump administration officials Thursday night, House Republicans agreed to vote on the bill Friday.
House Republican leaders have proposed last-minute changes to the health care bill, which they've offered in hopes of winning over wavering lawmakers. The House will vote on them when it considers the overall legislation, a debate scheduled for Friday.
