"The Speech"

President Obama's eloquent speech on why the time for health care reform is now. No notes. No teleprompter. Just vintage Barack Obama.

"I am bound to be true."

Must see.

It has taken 50 year to get this far, and thousands of people have spent hundreds of thousands of man hours getting us this far.

Please take ONE HOUR of your time and:

  • Make calls.  They ALWAYS make a difference. Teaparty  has been inundating these representatives with NO calls.
  • Send Emails. See below for how to easily (and not so easily ) send emails. Remember, most click-to-send systems will only list your own reps. We want to lean on everyone's Reps.

You MUST urge them to VOTE YES on Health Care Reform

LETTER: Please Vote YES on H.R. 4872: Stop Discrimination Against the Sick.

Dear Representative:

I'm writing to tell you why I'm such a strong supporter of health reform. With 51 million uninsured and the number growing daily, we can't afford to wait any longer. Too many Americans live in dire fear of getting sick. Businesses suffer, people suffer, and people die. American competitiveness around the world is at risk. 

Holding the future of our health care hostage for raw political gain is just wrong. Failing to right this wrong for fear of jeopardizing your own political future is cowardly. Please vote for health care reform and stop the immoral discrimination against the sick. 

Vote YES on H.R. 4872: The Reconciliation Act of 2010. 

Thank you.
