House Republicans are scheduled to vote on the GOP’s plan to replace the Affordable Care Act today, after President Trump told lawmakers that they’d either go ahead with the vote, or live with Obamacare as the health care rule of the land.

The Friday vote comes after House Speaker Paul Ryan postponed a vote on the bill Thursday due to opposition from some moderate and conservative Republicans.
