If you're wondering which members of Congress are the most important to contact about Obamacare, Andy Wickersham and I have put together our list -- along with indicating how red or blue their districts are, and whether or not they voted for the Stupak Amendment (to preserve longstanding protections against taxpayer-funded abortion, which the Senate bill scrapped). Thirty-five of these representatives are in Republican-leaning districts, most of them solidly so. Twenty-four of them voted for Stupak. Yet the Democrats need the support of the vast majority of these 40 to be able to pass the bill. Now is the time to contact these 40 members and to encourage your friends and family to do the same.  The fate of ObamaCare likely hangs in the balance.
