The Next Fight -- Call Your Electeds to Protect the ACA

Congress is about to vote to gut Obamacare. In order to stop them, we need three Republicans to join the good guys.

Senate Budget Committee Chair Michael Enzi (R-WY) introduced a budget resolution Tuesday that includes "reconciliation instructions" that enable Congress to repeal Obamacare with a simple Senate majority. Passing a budget resolution that includes those instructions will mean that the legislation can pass through the budget reconciliation process, in which bills cannot be filibustered.
Here's a link to all the contact info for the relevant elected officials.

To make it personal, here is a compilation of the deleterious effects a repeal would have on each state. "Getting rid of Obamacare is going to close a hospital your district relies on to employ your constituents!")

Get calling! You can throw stories, if you have them, in the comments!

UPDATE (1/3/2017, 5:37 PM): Danielle Gembala on Facebook shared with me an app, called Countable, that can help you contact your electeds. I found it a bit buggy and it only gave me my Senators, not my rep. But it might help you. Also, this directory tool from the League of Women Voters appears helpful, as well.
