Move On Fighting For Health Care Reform

Dear MoveOn member,

This month, we're either going to win or lose the fight for real health care reform.

Do you want to look back and wish you'd done more? I sure don't.

That's why we're planning to double our efforts on health care this month. Over the weekend, we blew through our initial fundraising goal. If we can raise an additional $180,000 immediately, we'll be able to dramatically expand our campaign to pass real health care reform. Can you chip in $15?

With Congress home this month, right-wing extremists are crashing town hall meetings, shouting down members of Congress, making death threats—they even hung one congressman in effigy.

In order to win on health care—and the rest of President Obama's agenda—we've got to double our efforts with a bold, ambitious plan of action to show that the overwhelming majority of Americans continue to support Obama's plans for change. We're calling it "Real Voices for Change."

The response was overwhelming: we blew past our last fundraising goal. And today we're deciding what more we can to do expand our campaign over the August recess—everything from additional on-the-ground turnout to town halls to hard-hitting new ads.

If we can raise an additional $180,000 immediately, we'll double our efforts. That means we need donations from 8 people in Virginia Beach. Can you chip in $15?

For more details on what's been happening at town halls across the country, see our message from last week below.

Thanks for all you do.

–Justin, Matt, Nita, Kat and the rest of the team
