Update on The Repeal and Replace. Keep Calling.

(CNN)Republicans are two votes away from another failure on their efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

House leaders need 216 Republican "yes" votes to get the legislation through the House, since no Democrats are expected to support the bill. According to CNN's whip count, 21 House Republicans have said they will vote against the new version of the bill. Republicans can lose up to 22 votes and still pass their legislation. If 23 Republicans vote against it, then it would likely not be able to pass.

    Another 18 Republicans have told CNN they are undecided. That's at least 39 lawmakers publicly opposed to or undecided on the bill. All Dems are opposed

    Make those calls. Get two more at least to join the nos or undecideds.

    Call your representative at (844) 241-1141 and demand they put an end to this bill once and for all.

    We need you to let those undecided legislators know that they have MUCH more to fear from their constituents, who are overwhelmingly against the AHCA and will not hesitate to vote out anyone who would deny healthcare to millions of Americans!

    We need 2 more Republicans to publicly oppose the bill. If they are silent, we have to assume they are in support of the bill and going forward, treat them accordingly. Make it clear: silence won't do them any favors with their constituents. The vote is expected to happen on Thursday.

    Essentially every Democrat as well as 21 Republican representatives have publicly stated their opposition to the AHCA. If your representative is one of them, we need you to thank them and tell them you expect them to hold strong against any further iterations of this bill.
