Dear MoveOn member,
Last week, we announced the Virtual March for Real Health Care Reform—and the response has been incredible. From labor unions to progressive blogs, from California to Florida, hundreds of thousands of people are ready to take action tomorrow.
The timing couldn't be more critical. With the president's health care plan unveiled yesterday and his congressional summit coming up, all eyes are on health care.1 This could be our last, big chance to make sure Congress hears our message loud and clear: it's time to get reform done, and done right.
But to hit our goal of one million messages to Congress and truly make this the biggest, movement-wide action of the health care fight, we need more people—like you!--to sign up today.
Will you join the Virtual March? Just click the link below—we'll sign you up and automatically send a fax in your name to Sens. Gillibrand and Schumer. Then on the day of the march, we'll email you to remind you to call your senators as well.
A million messages in one day—from MoveOn members, labor unions, blog readers, members of the Health Care for America Now coalition, Democracy for America, TrueMajority, and other progressive groups—will send an unmistakable message to Capitol Hill.
And we've got to make it huge. With health care reform—including the public option—regaining momentum,2 there's going to be intense pushback from conservatives and Big Insurance opponents of reform this week and in weeks to come. But as we have for the past year, we've got to break through their noise and make sure Congress remembers that regular folks both want and need real reform.
This is going to be huge—and a lot of fun. But we need as many people as possible from across the country to speak out to make it work. Can you join the Virtual March today? Click the link below to sign up and we'll automatically send a fax to Sens. Gillibrand and Schumer:
Thanks for all you do.
