It’s really sad, the Republicans are completely irrational and are without compassion.
I don’t know about you, but, if I have traumatic brain injury, heart disease, cancer, influenza, pneumonia, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic liver disease, cirrhosis or even a toothache I’m surely not going to my neighbor Bob for a cure – but that’s what the Republicans want Americans to do according to Senator Tom Coburn.
So I guess if you’re OK with getting your medical and dental care from Bob the Builder or Joe the Plumber the Republican solution will work just fine for you.
But, if you live in the greatest country in the world, in the new millennium and believe that in America all things are possible and that here in America we should have the best medical and dental care possible, with proper and adequate regulations in place, then I guess Healthcare reform is for you.
Call your elected officials and let them know that you want Healthcare Reform with a public option. Get up, stand up, don’t give up the fight!
Organizing for America is putting together thousands of events this month where you can reach out to neighbors, show your support, and make certain your members of Congress know that you’re counting on them to act.
But these canvasses, town halls, and gatherings only make a difference if you turn up to knock on doors, share your views, and show your support. So here’s what I need from you:
Can you sign up to attend an event near you?
Passing comprehensive health insurance reform will not be easy. Every President since Harry Truman has talked about it, and the most powerful and experienced lobbyists in Washington stand in the way.
Fixing this crisis will not be easy. Our opponents will attack us every day for daring to try. It will require time, and hard work, and there will be days when we don’t know if we have anything more to give. But there comes a moment when we all have to choose between doing what’s easy, and doing what’s right.
This is one of those times.
Please RSVP for an event in your community to build support for health insurance reform:
Now is the time. Let’s seize this moment and win this historic victory for our economy, our health and our families.
