I ran across this wonderful free fax site that even has the fax numbers filled in for contacting your Senators, Representatives, and the Pres. I think they do have a max of fax per day. Will cost for more pages, other features but free is great for those without fax capabilities! (me)

Free FAX:

I hope to add links to other contact methods later (phone, office, etc.).

Contact info plus phone:

Great idea!

I called my representative a few days ago and expressed my displeasure about repealing ACA. I added that my daughter will be without insurance. My rep is a right-wing Republican but I figure if she gets enough volume, she might start worrying about reelection. And there are certainly Republicans who are benefiting from Obamacare.

I hope all dissatisfied voters will contact their representatives.

There's also this:

Paul Ryan Wants Your Opinion On Obamacare

Paul Ryan's office is conducting a phone poll, hoping to hear overwhelming opposition to the Affordable Care Act. Here's how you can participate:
Call (202) 225-0600....
Press 2 to weigh in on the issue. You'll hear a recording about the bill to repeal it, then Press 1 to support continuing the Affordable Healthcare Act. It takes less than 2 minutes!

I did this too. Please forgive me if I've posted this before or if I actually got this from GL. My memory is so bad.

I tried when you first posted it. I could not leave a message, I think (mailbox full).

I'm adding Bookfan's link with contact info, including phone numbers, here:

Reportedly calling is much more effective than letters or emailing.

I plan on calling my two senators about the Gorsuch vote. He has made some controversial calls - and will surely NOT be on the people's side!

This seat was stolen from Garland. If Gorsuch is getting in, it should not be with any democratic help.

Absolutely.

And there's more than $10 million in dark money campaigning for him, from persons he won't name. Wonder what they'll want as a payoff?

I think it's possible that the senator who brought this up during the hearings was actually pointing out that it is hidden money due to court rulings!

Nice find. It's so hard to get past the spin.

It helps to see what is being voted on.

- though it all seems so depressing.
