Last night President Obama successfully laid out his plan for healthcare reform at a joint session of Congress. President Obama made it unequivocally clear to Congress that their recess is over, that their time of game playing is over and that it is time for them to get back to work and do the job they were hired to do by the American people.
The speech was a brilliant and was filled with specifics.
Can you imagine a healthcare system where you and your family and the rest of us cannot be turned away for treatment because of a pre-existing condition?
Or your premiums cannot go up just because you get sick?
And your health insurance carrier cannot ‘water down’ your benefits, period.
And if you don’t have insurance you will get coverage!
How wonderful is all that?!
The heart of President Obama’s plan is simple:
1. Bring stability and security to Americans who already have health insurance
2. Guarantee affordable coverage for those who don’t have health insurance
3. Stop the rising cost of health insurance
President Obama incorporated the best ideas from Democrats and Republicans to create a plan that’s bold, practical, and represents what the majority of Americans agree on.
President Obama reminded us that we’ve come closer to real healthcare reform in the last few months than we have in the last 60 years. But those who profit from our unhealthy healthcare system the way it is now will fight him and fight us every inch of the way so that there is no healthcare reform. Because of this, YOUR voice, right now, is necessary, indispensable and is very important.
Healthcare reform will not happen just because we want it. It can only come when we demand it. The only way Congress is going to pass healthcare reform is if they hear from you and me. I have made my calls, sent emails and letters. Will YOU and every adult in your house please do the same?

Many of us spent a lot of time and energy to get President Obama elected; that was just the beginning. Now we have to spend equal or more time making sure that he is successful implementing the policies we hired him to put into effect.
It is essential that you let your Senators and U.S. Representatives know that you support President Obama’s healthcare reform.
Democracy is not a spectator sport – we all have to participate for it to work. Please participate.
