Call Congress —
? This is a red alert: PENCE is calling moderates and telling them they have the votes. Only a TIDAL WAVE of calls tomorrow can stop them. ?

The House GOP thinks that it might have either the votes or is close enough to having the votes for the AHCA that the last hold-outs will cave rather than have their arms twisted twice around their ears and a reactionary primary challenger. They also think that this is the last week or so where their calendar lines up for a double reconciliation for 2017. So call Congress.

Right now the arm twisting is going on full force, so they need calls to say that their district just won’t let them kick people for tax cuts.
