House GOP leaders are hurtling toward a vote Friday on their embattled health-care bill without knowing for sure they have enough support to pass the measure, after yielding to Trump administration demands to act now.
If the high-stakes gamble works and the House manages to pass the Obamacare replacement bill, it will be an important win for President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan who have formed an uneasy alliance to repeal the health care law.
But if the measure is blocked, it will be an embarrassing setback that casts doubt on the ability of Trump and Ryan to deliver on their ambitious agenda, including a sweeping tax overhaul and infrastructure package, both of which are being closely watched by Wall Street.
