Health Care Can’t Wait!

This week, Congress goes back to work on important health care legislation that could address our country’s health care crisis by lowering costs, making private insurers play by fair rules, and providing affordable coverage for everyone.

Can you make a quick call to your Members of Congress and ask them to stand firm for health care reform that provides quality, affordable health care to everyone in America?

Call 1-877-264-HCAN (4226) to be connected to your members of Congress.

         Please be polite. Ask to talk with someone who can tell you the Senator/Representative’s position on health care.

Here is a sample of what you could say to Senators:

I’m calling from Health Care for America Now to make sure that Sen. _____ knows that we need real health care reform in 2009.

  • Please tell ____________ to support the legislation from the HELP Committee that provides:
    • Coverage we can afford;
    • Comprehensive benefits we can count on;
    • Choice of a private or public health insurance plan; and
    • Equal access to quality care.

Here is a sample of what you could say to Representatives:

I’m calling from Health Care for America Now to make sure that Rep. _____ knows that we need real health care reform in 2009.

  • Please tell ____________ to support the legislation from the House Leadership that provides:
    • Coverage we can afford;
    • Comprehensive benefits we can count on;
    • Choice of a private or public health insurance plan; and
    • Equal access to quality care.

Thank you for making those calls!!!!
