Paul Ryan To Update Trump On O’Care Repeal Bill As House Floor Vote Looms


Tierney Sneed contributed reporting.

As the House floor vote on Republicans’ bill to repeal and replace Obamacare drew closer Friday afternoon, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) office said that he would head to the White House to give President Donald Trump an update on the legislation.

“The speaker is going to the White House to update the president,” Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong confirmed to TPM.

The House is expected to vote on the American Health Care Act on Friday afternoon, after Trump challenged GOPers late Thurdsay to get on with the vote. But it’s not clear that Republican leaders have enough votes in their own caucus to pass the bill.
