Thankful for Obamacare? Talk about it at Thanksgiving dinner

Dear MoveOn member,

Happy (early) Thanksgiving!

This year, we're thankful because—despite every Republican attempt to repeal it—health care reform is still the law of the land and millions of Americans are seeing the benefits. And whether you're celebrating the holiday with close family, friends, or your conservative relatives—it's the perfect time to tell them why you're thankful for Obamacare too.

Since the Affordable Care Act passed, we've heard countless stories of people receiving better coverage for less, no longer being denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions, and receiving rebates from their insurance companies. But too much of the mainstream media has been obsessed with a bungled website rollout and insurance companies dropping people from junk policies—instead of the millions of Americans who've directly benefited from Obamacare.

That's precisely why MoveOn members are using Thanksgiving dinner to counter the propaganda and to have a frank talk with family about why we're thankful for health care reform. Can you commit to having a conversation about Obamacare tomorrow?

5 reasons to be thankful for Obamacare

Almost all of us have at least one conservative family member or friend and it's up to us to make sure that they know—despite everything they've heard on Fox and CBS—that the Affordable Care Act is working. And what better time to convince them than over a hearty meal on a day of reflection like Thanksgiving.

The Obamacare success stories are out there—nearly a thousand have been submitted by MoveOn members in the last week alone. And chances are—if you look hard enough—there's someone quite close to you who's benefiting directly from the Affordable Care Act. Just imagine how the national conversation will change if 8 million MoveOn members take to dining room tables, living rooms, and soup kitchens tomorrow to talk about the benefits of Obamacare.

To make it easy, we've created a kit to help you get the most out of your dinner conversations. If you can commit to talking up Obamacare with family and friends during Thanksgiving this year, click here to get the kit:

Thanks for all you do.
