Dear MoveOn member,

Wow! Since Monday, MoveOn members have pledged nearly $1.5 million to support progressive primary challengers to House Democrats who vote against health care reform. That's incredible.

But with the final vote just days away, the House is still short a handful of votes.

So we're setting an ambitious new goal to keep the momentum building: $2 million in pledges by Friday. That's a serious sum for any challenger, and will make conservative Democrats think twice before casting a vote.

Can you pledge today? You don't have to enter your credit card info. Just click on an amount below to pledge:

Pledge $25

Pledge $50

Pledge $100

Pledge $200

Pledge another amount

The Health Care Accountability Pledge is pretty simple: you say how much you'd give to a progressive challenger to support their campaign, and then we publicize the amount pledged, and make sure the media and every wavering representative know about it. Word's already getting out1 and will only build as the momentum grows.

And we need to keep the pressure up: the House is still a handful of votes short, and the conservative opposition—from the Chamber of Commerce to the National Republican Congressional Committee—is funneling millions into scaring off wavering Democrats.2

This is it. If we succeed, health care reform will be law by next week—but it's going to take an intense, nationwide push to make it happen.

How much can you pledge? Just click below to take the pledge, then forward this note to your friends and ask them to pledge, too.

Thanks for all you do.
