Close and getting closer. That's how key Republican leaders see their prospects of passing a replacement for ObamaCare.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:

Republican Whip Steve Scalise says progress is being made to secure the 216 GOP votes needed in the House to advance a Republican health care bill without any Democratic assistance:

(Scalise) "We're working through with each member that isn't yet there that's trying to get there to get to that magic number."

One new idea is to add additional federal funds for high-risk pools to offset some insurance costs for people with pre-existing conditions.

But so far, no vote has been scheduled, even as President Trump's budget director says a measure could hit the floor by the end of the week.
