The Hill's Whip List: 36 GOP no votes on ObamaCare repeal plan

House Republicans are heading to a Friday vote on their ObamaCare repeal-and-replace legislation.

House Republicans had planned to vote on the bill on Thursday, the seventh anniversary of ObamaCare becoming law. But GOP leaders appeared to be short of the 215 votes they needed and delayed the vote.

Late Thursday, President Trump delivered an ultimatum to conservatives who had demanded changes to the bill, telling them to get on board. Trump said if the bill did not pass the House on Friday, he would leave ObamaCare in place and move on to other priorities.

GOP leaders had sought to win over conservatives with changes that would eliminate "essential health benefits" — the minimum coverage requirements insurers must include in plans. But those proposals caused centrists to balk.

Republicans face a slim margin for error. With one Democrat expected to be absent and all others expected to vote no, GOP leaders cannot afford more than 22 defections in the House.

The Senate poses an even tougher challenge. Republicans can only afford two defections in that chamber.

Here's a list of how Republican lawmakers stand on the ObamaCare repeal-and-replace legislation. The Hill will update this list. Please send updates to mmali@thehill.com.
