The House of Representatives is planning to vote on the American Health Care Act — the Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare — today. A specific time for the vote has not yet been announced, but if in fact it does happen, it’s expected to take place sometime in the late afternoon Eastern time.

President Donald Trump is endorsing the Republican proposal on health care as “a great plan,” ahead of a make-or-break vote in the House. The president tweeted Friday that “After seven horrible years of ObamaCare (skyrocketing premiums & deductibles, bad healthcare), this is finally your chance for a great plan!”
The vote had been scheduled for late Thursday but was postponed after administration officials failed to convince skeptical conservative Republicans to support the bill.
Trump claimed he was finished negotiating with GOP holdouts and determined to pursue the rest of his agenda, win or lose.
Barring any further delays, the vote is expected to take place later Friday.
