Update 2: Earlier this morning we said the following:

“…the further we press into today without confirmation that Republicans have narrowed the opposition votes from their own party down to 22 or less (as of last night the estimate was 25-30) the more unlikely the vote is to proceed.”

It now looks like other analysts are coming around to that fact as well and are lowering their expectations of TrumpCare passing the House today. Per Bloomberg, Veda analyst Spencer Perlman has lowered his odds to 60% that a vote will occur before the weekend and Beacon Policy Advisors notes simply that the vote is “likely to slip until later today or possibly even into the weekend…”

More time likely needed on possible last minute provisions limiting benefits like hospitalization, ambulance services and maternity care, Veda analyst Spencer Perlman writes in note

Adding language limiting these benefits may be enough to “squeak the bill” through House, but Veda is increasingly doubtful will get done tonight

Sees 60% chance bill passes House before the weekend, previously saw 65% chance it would pass tonight; keeps 10% odds Senate will finish work before April recess

Vote is likely to slip until later today or possibly even into the weekend, Beacon Policy Advisors writes

Investors shouldn’t view delays as signal AHCA’s chances of passage are dying; instead, continued negotiations may be positive sign, signaling there’s still “willpower” to make concessions, forge agreements.
