On Track For Afternoon Repeal Vote

Enough House GOP moderates, laboring with the pre-existing condition know as weak spines, have mostly come over in the last 24 hours to appear to give Paul Ryan and Donald Trump the votes they need to pass Obamacare repeal and replace and send their monstrosity of a bill over to the Senate, where it will be dramatically reworked one way or the other.

No CBO score and, as of a few minutes ago, no final complete text for the bill. But a vote is expected this afternoon, and as of right now there doesn’t appear to be the kind of wobbling from House GOPers that would imperil the bill. We’ll bring you all the latest as it happens.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
