Transcript for GOP negotiates as House prepares to vote on health care bill
Now let's turn to the battle over health care. The house is scheduled to hold that crucial vote on the Republican bill today. And negotiations are coming down to the wire. Our congressional correspondent Mary Bruce has the latest, joins us from capitol hill. Good morning, Mary. Reporter: Good morning, robin. Well, it was a late night of negotiating here and this morning Republican leaders are still struggling to unite their party. Now, there are signs of optimism but still no firm agreement. Easy, guys. Reporter: Overnight Republicans scrambling to negotiate as it hits a wall. We think there are ways to improve it that will get enough votes, but so far we don't have any language. Reporter: The bill's opponents huddling late into the night but this morning still no deal. I'm not going to stay up all night trying to get this worked out without anticipating a vote tomorrow. Reporter: Signs of progress from the conservative opponents but changes offered to satisfy the right risk jeopardizing the moderates and this morning, the list of nos is growing. By our count at least 30 Republicans still oppose. More than enough votes to kill the bill in the house. It's been a frantic push to the finish. Guy, stop pushing. Reporter: The president and vice president have been working the phones making in person pitches but it doesn't seem to be working. It's not going to pass as it stands right now unless they make major changes to it. Reporter: Hold-outs are demanding Chicagos. Among other things conservatives want the bill to further lower premiums. Republican leaders and the white house are open to negotiations but they're also adamant, this is their best shot to overhaul Obamacare. There's no plan B. There's a plan a and plan a. We'll get this done. Reporter: But it's unclear if they can overcome the resistance. Thank you, everybody. Mr. Mr. President, if the house and people like their doctor can they keep their doctor? Reporter: The president is lobbying hard and he'll meet with conservative hold-outs at the white house while on capitol hill the speaker will huddle with his members as they try to strike a deal. Robin. All that going on, still expecting a vote by tonight? Reporter: Yeah, that vote is still a go even though many Republicans say this bill still isn't going anywhere. Mary, thank you.
