White House officials said late Thursday that President Trump wants the House to vote Friday on the legislation to begin dismantling ObamaCare and if it fails he is “done with health care,” and ready to move on to tax reform, a source told Fox News.
"My understanding is he’s going to get it," White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on "The O'Reilly Factor."
Fox News’ Chad Pergram reported on what to expect Friday. After a few procedural moves, the House will likely vote on the bill sometime in the mid-to-late afternoon.

But if the bill stumbles, recriminations will abound.
