The House steered toward a climactic vote Friday on the Republican health care overhaul, plunging ahead despite uncertainty over whether they had the votes to prevail in what loomed as a monumental gamble for President Donald Trump and his GOP allies in Congress. Debate began hours after White House officials told fractious GOP lawmakers at a Thursday night Capitol meeting that Trump was finished negotiating with GOP holdouts and would move on to the rest of his agenda, win or lose. In a morning tweet, Trump targeted the House Freedom Caucus, whose hard-right members have been the core of opposition to the GOP legislation and have come under intense pressure from the White House and party leaders to fall into line.

2 Trains Sideswipe at NYC Station, No Injuries Reported

An Amtrak train bound for Washington, D.C., bumped an NJ Transit train as it departed New York's Penn Station at the height of Friday's morning rush, breaking some windows and causing a minor derailment but no serious injuries, authorities said. NJ Transit said one of its trains on the Montclair/Boonton line was coming into the Manhattan transit hub shortly after 9 a.m. when the departing Acela sideswiped it between the north tube and the station. Amtrak did not acknowledge the bump in a later statement, but said its Acela Express Train 2151 "had a minor derailment while moving at a slow speed." The train originated in Boston. "The rear of the train was still on the platform, and all 248 passengers have exited the train onto the platform and into the station safely," the statement said. "Service into and out of New York Penn Station will be delayed while we investigate this incident."
