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

Subject: 100,000 calls to Congress
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
Sen. Jon Kyl
Rep. Harry Mitchell
(Not your representatives? Click
here to look yours up.)
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:
