Call for Healthcare Reform NOW!

It looks like if congress doesn’t pass healthcare reform before the August break it will never pass. Obama really needs your support as they try to weaken his plan so it is ineffectual.

Call and tell your elected representatives.
“ We won’t settle for anything less than a genuine public healthcare option. Stay in session and don’t break for the August recess until it is done!”

I just called and it took a total of 10 minutes- the White House may make you hold for a while but don’t hang up.
