FW: 100,000 calls to Congress

I know many of you probably already have received this, but wanted to forward it on to the group just in case you haven’t. They have already received the 100,000 calls there were seeking for today, and are now looking for 200,000. I’ve made my calls. It only takes a couple of minutes and I actually got to talk to a real live person in Harry Mitchell’s office, who had a very nervous “I can’t believe I’m hearing this again” kind of laugh when I told her I had voted for Harry but he needed to vote for progressive health care reform to keep it.

 

Sorry I don’t have the other congressional phone numbers but this website should lead you to a number.

Subject: 100,000 calls to Congress

 

Barbara --

Jenny U. from Missouri did what any parent would: When her son needed a kidney, she donated one of hers. But she didn't realize insurance companies would use her kindness as an excuse to never cover her again, calling her donation a "pre-existing condition."

Now, insurance companies are spending millions on a campaign of lies to kill health reform that would help folks like Jenny. So, today, with crucial negotiations taking place in Congress, we're raising our voices and making it clear: It's time to deliver on reform.

We've set a big goal: 100,000 calls to Congress made or committed to in a single day. To hit it, we'll need your help -- will you take 3 minutes to call Congress now?

Call your representatives and tell them: It's Time to Deliver on health reform. According to our records, you live in Arizona's 5th congressional district. Please call:

Sen. John McCain at[masked]
Sen. Jon Kyl at[masked]
Rep. Harry Mitchell at[masked]

Health insurance reform is finally ready for consideration by the full Congress, and hundreds of insurance company lobbyists on Capitol Hill are working overtime to kill it. Calling is quick and easy, but effective -- and your voice has tremendous power at this critical moment.

After you make your call, tell the staffer who picks up where you live and that you're counting on Congress to deliver on health reform. Let them know that Americans like you support the President's plan -- and that if your representatives are working to pass it, they have your thanks.

If we hit 100,000 calls made or committed to, we'll send an unmistakable signal that this time, families must come before insurance companies. We'll be tracking progress toward our goal publicly -- make sure to report your call back to us so we can count it:
