Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will vote on repealing the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, in favor of Trump's proposed American Health Care Act of 2017. You shouldn't want that—experts don't want that.

While lamenting to social media about the ineptitude of our current administration does provide a sense of relief, it doesn't address the immediate problem: Obamacare is only 216 votes away from no longer existing; 23 million people are at risk of losing health insurance.

To put the odds into perspective, there are 237 Republicans in the House. All Democrats have said they will vote against the repeal. Fortunately, hope is not lost. There are 26 GOP members that are still undecided, meaning if 22 of them vote against repealing Obamacare, the American Health Care Act of 2017 doesn't stand a chance.

Below is a list of those undecided lawmakers, and the numbers for their offices. Find the ones from your state, call them, and tell them to vote NO to repealing Obamacare. It wouldn't hurt to ask them to vote against AHCA also, considering it will leave 24 million or so Americans without health insurance. You'll notice that's a million more than if they just got rid of Obamacare—because that's just how poorly structured AHCA is.

The odds of keeping Obamacare intact might seem impossibly low, but the effort it takes to do your small part is less than closing out of this article and opening up your Instagram. Start dialing.
