Steve Scalise on AHCA: ‘We Aren’t Quite There Yet But We’re Getting Closer Every Day’
‘We’re moving closer to getting the number we get to pass the bill’
HEMMER: "But as, as of now, at 9 o'clock East Coast Time, there is not a clear answer as to whether or not you have the votes necessary. Is that correct?"
SCALISE: "You know, we are not -- we are not quite there yet but we're getting closer every day. And I think you see the events that are going to unfold that the White House will be another big step to get us closer to that magic number and ultimately to bring the bill to the floor and pass it. And our members are really focused on helping deliver this win to the American people to provide relief from ObamaCare."
