Health Insurance Reform 2009

For decades, health insurance reform has been blocked by special interest lobbying and political point-scoring.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. These groups are using scare tactics and spreading smears about the President's plan for reform, trying to incite constituents into lashing out at their representatives and disrupting their events.

The goal of these disruptions is for a few people to get a lot of media attention and hijack the entire public discourse. If they succeed, all Americans -- Democrats, Republicans, and Independents -- will continue to struggle under the broken status quo.

It's up to us to show Congress that those loudly opposing reform are a tiny minority being stirred up by special interests, and that a huge majority strongly supports enacting real health insurance reform in 2009.

President Obama has laid out the three core principles for real health insurance reform:

  • Reduce costs — Rising health care costs are crushing the budgets of governments, businesses, individuals, and families, and they must be brought under control.

  • Guarantee choice — Every American must have the freedom to choose their plan and doctor – including the choice of a public insurance option.

  • Ensure quality care for all — All Americans must have quality and affordable health care.

What's wrong with that? We’ve tried everything else, but we have not tried health insurance reform. Hell, call it ObamaCare, who cares? We're going to do everything we can to make sure reform gets passed this year. Take action to support real health insurance reform. Get involved in the fight for health insurance reform this month: This is the moment our movement was built for. For one month, the fight for health insurance reform leaves the backrooms of Washington, D.C., and returns to communities across America. Throughout August, members of Congress are back home, where the hands they shake and the voices they hear will not belong to lobbyists

Call your Congressman and declare your support for these three core principles for health care reform.
