Every day we hear new arguments that America should just put off health care reform.
But millions of Americans can't afford to wait. Like Joe B., a MoveOn member whose family is facing over $20,000 in costs for their autistic son's treatment because his insurance company won't cover what the doctor prescribed. And Nicole T.'s mother, who lost her insurance coverage after being diagnosed with cancer.
With just 14 days until Congress heads back to D.C. to vote on health care, we need to bring the health care debate back to what matters.
To do that, we're launching "We Can't Afford to Wait," a photo petition to remind Congress of the real lives at stake. Will you join the photo petition today by submitting a picture of yourself holding up a sign showing why you or someone you love can't afford to wait?
Click here to get started.
Submitting a photo is really easy, and we provide step-by-step instructions.
We'll share the photo petition—pictures of thousands of MoveOn members holding up signs saying why they or a loved one can't afford to wait for real health care reform—with Congress and the media.
Through our "We can't afford to wait: Public Option NOW!" vigils next week, by delivering photo albums to each member of Congress, and by making sure your stories are heard in the news media, we'll help bring the debate back to what really matters.
It's too easy for Congress to get mired in the politics of health care, and forget the substance. By reminding them about the true cost of inaction in a visible and visceral way, we can make sure the needs of real Americans are front and center when our senators and representatives head back to Washington to vote on health care reform.
Can you submit a photo today and remind Congress why America can't afford to wait for real reform?
