Medicaid is the key. The AHCA is still cutting $800 billion plus from Medicaid over a decade and this is the point of resistance for the Tuesday Morning Group, a group of 40 to 50 less conservative Republicans who are likely to represent districts that are vulnerable in wave elections.
Let them know that this is important and that killing Medicaid kicks them out of a job in 2018.

With Chaffetz going out for surgery, Ryan can afford to lose 21 votes assuming every Democrat shows up. (Any Democrat who is not in the ICU or at the funeral of spouse and does not vote should be primaried). The House Freedom Caucus might still have two or three No Votes, Rep. Massie from Tennessee is still a NO vote. The Tuesday Morning Group needs to supply at least seventeen or eighteen No votes to defeat the legislation.
