UPDATE: On Friday afternoon, President Trump directed House Speaker Paul Ryan to withdraw the "American Health Care Act" (AHCA) from consideration by the House of Representatives.

President Trump gave an ultimatum to Republicans members of the House: Pass Obamacare replacement legislation on Friday, March 24 or get used to Obamacare sticking around.

There are enough GOP representatives who don't like the "American Health Care Act" (AHCA) supported by House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald Trump that the White House is uneasy about the outcome of the vote.

The New York Times looked at  public statements made by the lawmakers themselves to put together a comprehensive look at how each House member is likely to vote.

Here's where Ohio's representatives stand as of the morning of March 24.

"Support or Lean YES"

  • Steve Chabot (OH-1)
  • Bob Latta (OH-5) 
  • Bill Johnson (OH-6)
  • Bob Gibbs (OH-7)
  • Pat Tiberi (OH-12)
  • Steve Stivers (OH-15)
  • James B. Renacci (OH-16)

"Undecided or Unclear"

  • Brad Wenstrup (OH-2)
  • David Joyce (OH-14)

"Concerned or Leaning NO"

  •  Michael R. Turner (OH-10)

"NO"

  • Jim Jordan (OH-4)
  • Warren Davidson (OH-8)

The math

  • There are 237 Republicans in the House
  • The bill needs 215 votes to pass
  • No Democrats say they support it, but at least may miss the vote.
  • No more than 22 Republicans can vote against the bill, if it is to pass
  • As of Friday morning, 32 Republicans were in the "no" camp
