Saumya's message below from earlier this week is all the more urgent today.
Congressional leaders continue to take steps toward dismantling Obamacare -- last night, the Senate voted to advance its repeal.
We cannot sit by and let that happen. Right now, pick up the phone and let elected officials know that you will not stand for the repeal of a law that's saving lives and helping millions of Americans get the quality, affordable care they deserve.
Rushing to repeal is irresponsible and heartless -- it's up to all of us to speak up.

--- ORIGINAL MESSAGE ---
Congress has been in session for less than a week, and its leaders are already taking steps to repeal Obamacare, which could rip health coverage away from up to 30 million people.
That's not OK. It's irresponsible and cruel for them to make a political game out of what's a life or death issue for so many -- especially when they have no idea what they'd do to replace Obamacare. It's up to all of us to say so.
Our elected officials need to hear from their constituents about the real consequences of repealing Obamacare. Every voice makes a difference in building the fight against repeal.
Call your senator right now -- urge them to protect Obamacare and to vote against the rush to repeal.
If congressional leaders are successful in repealing this law, we'll be going back to a broken system -- one where insurance companies can deny coverage to millions of people based on a pre-existing condition, or set arbitrary lifetime dollar limits on a patient's coverage, or charge women more just for being women.
We can't let that happen.
It's time to speak up, to make sure that our elected officials know that we won't stand for repeal, and to urge them to step up and defend Obamacare.
Phone calls make a difference. Call today. Call every day. This is one of the most effective ways to make your voice heard and to have an impact in this fight -- we can't back down now.
