Organizing for America is sending this email requesting that people call their congressmen and support Obama’s health care plan.
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 Minnesota’s 8th congressional district. Please call:
Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s Minneapolis office at (612) 727-5220
Sen. Al Franken’s St Paul office at (651) 221-1016
Rep. James Oberstar’s Duluth office at (218) 727-7474
(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:

Citizen Wells comments
The far left, socialists, communists, government hand out folks will make themselves be heard. The ACORN trained leftists will be heard multiple times. We must make sure that the hard working, tax paying, concerned Americans let congressmen know that we do not want Obama’s plan or any health care plan rammed down our throats. We do need health care reform, real reform, not government intervention where it does not belong.
Ask Obama and the Democrats about tort reform.
