Fight for Health Care Reform!!

The fight for health care reform in the Senate is getting down to the wire. The toughest vote yet is only days away. Regrettably, leaders in the Senate had to negotiate on the public option in order to keep the legislation alive. Although we may be disappointed, we can’t let opponents of reform defeat us. Now is the time to fight harder than ever to make sure health reform gets the 60 votes it needs to pass the Senate.
Senator Edward Kennedy put it best when he said, “I have seen throughout my life how we as a people can rise to a challenge, embrace change, and renew our destiny."
It is time for us to rise to the challenge, to let our voices be heard.
This is an historic moment, one that we have all been working toward for months, some of us for years. But, we cannot simply stand by and wait. Sixty votes are needed to pass the bill out of the Senate. This promises to be much more challenging than moving health reform out of the House.
Call 1-800-828-0498 to urge your Senators to vote YES on the health reform bill.
Once you’ve placed the call click here to tell us how it went.
Now is the time, more than ever, to urge your Senators to move health reform forward. It is vital that they know their constituents stand behind them and want this bill passed.
The cost of inaction is far too great. This bill will save lives and prevent hard-working Americans from going into medical debt when they fall on hard times.
Please tell you Senators that Americans need quality, affordable health care, and we can no longer wait.
Call 1-800-828-0498 to urge your Senators to vote YES on the health reform bill.
Never in the history of health reform have we made it this far, and now is not the time to let up. Make sure you are part of the fight every step of the way. Call your Senators today and tell them to move health reform forward.
Thank you,
Jessica Larochelle
