But moving that way to please conservatives then caused problems for Republican moderates, as several of them announced opposition to the bill during the day on Thursday.
It was unclear if there was going to be a vote on Friday - nothing could be scheduled until leaders reach a deal.
Republicans had been excited about the symbolism of voting Thursday on their bill, because that would be exactly seven years since the Obama health reforms were signed into law.
