House GOP Leaders Cancel Vote on Health Care Bill
House Republicans will not hold a vote tonight on their health care bill, a setback for President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Shepard Smith reported moments ago that a new date for a vote on the ObamaCare repeal-and-replace legislation has not been set.
Ryan was supposed to appear at a news conference this afternoon, but it was postponed.

Fox News senior Capitol Hill producer Chad Pergram said House Republicans have been advised to be prepare for votes to be taken tomorrow.
He said, however, that a lot of things have to "line up" for that to happen.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said they are continuing to debate the health care bill "in good faith."
"We have not gotten enough of our members to get to 'yes' at this point," Meadows said at a news conference Thursday afternoon. "However, I would say progress is being made."
