The U.S. House of Representatives is set to hold a vital vote on a revised Healthcare Bill that Republicans hope will replace Obamacare.
House majority leader, Kevin Mccarthy, said the leadership in the party is confident that it has secured enough votes for the bill to pass, after which it will go to the Senate where it could face a more tricky passage.
The first attempt at getting a new Healthcare Bill collapsed in disarray in March, despite the party controlling both the Legislative Chambers and the White House.
But several key Republicans this week reversed course, partly due to an amendment by Congressman, Fred Upton, to provide $8bn over five years towards coverage for sick people.
Democrats, however, said the amount is woefully inadequate.
