Are you a medical professional, or involved in a small business? If so, your voice is needed in the health care debate right away.
Right now, the heart of Obama's plan is under attack from big insurance companies and conservative lobbyists.1,2
But the few insiders getting rich off of the current system don't speak for all Americans, so we're putting together two special open letters—one from medical professionals and one from small businesspeople—on the importance of passing real reform, including a strong public health insurance option.
If you're a medical professional or involved in a small business, we need your voice today. Click on one of the links below to read the letter and sign your name:
The next three weeks could be make or break for health care reform—key committees are finalizing legislation right now. During these crucial weeks, it's important for Congress to hear from those with firsthand knowledge of just how badly our health care system needs fixing.
They need to hear from doctors and other medical professionals about the difficult situation they're in, and how that impacts patients. And they need to hear from small businesspeople who see the impact of health care costs on their businesses, employees, and communities every day.
We'll be sharing these letters with members of Congress, including yours, and also working to get them printed in national and local newspapers—to make sure these important perspectives are heard as the effort to reform health care moves into the home stretch.Thanks for all you do.
