Outlook Looking Bleak for GOP on 'Obamacare' Repeal Bill
Outlook Looking Bleak for GOP on 'Obamacare' Repeal Bill

The Republicans' capstone health care overhaul seemed in dire trouble Friday as Speaker Paul Ryan weighed strategy at the White House with President Donald Trump. GOP lawmakers and aides said they lacked the votes to succeed in the House, just hours before a do-or-die showdown demanded by Trump. GOP leaders pushed toward a climactic House roll call, but their promise to stage the vote increasingly looked like a losing gamble for the new president and his GOP allies in Congress. Vice President Mike Pence was meeting near the Capitol with the House Freedom Caucus. That group's hard-right members, along with a growing band of party moderates, have been driving GOP opposition and threatening to crash one of Trump's and Ryan's top priorities. "I think the president has given it his all," White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters in what sounded like a concession that the measure's fate was bleak. He added, "The speaker has done everything he can. You can't force people to vote."
