Remember the American Health Care Act that was supposed to be voted on yesterday, the seventh anniversary of the passage of Obamacare, in the House? It didn’t happen, but maybe Friday.

The White House says the vote will be held Friday morning “in the light of day,” according to Axios. But House members aren’t sure when exactly the vote will take place now. In case you need a refresher of the current situation, the GOP doesn’t have enough votes to actually pass its Obamacare repeal. This due to different concerns from different coalitions inside the party.

So now with a slight break in the action of health care reform, it’s time to look at the state of the game. Here’s where Ohio’s Republicans stand on the American Health Care Act:

In summary, that’s six for the bill, two opposed, two dodging requests for comment and one with a vague Facebook post about the amendments to the bill. We’ll keep calling and try to get a final count before whenever the actual vote will take place. Check back here over the next week as we update the reps’ positions.
