Imagine if every single phone line, fax machine, email inbox, and social network page of every senator was flooded with a simple message simultaneously: It's time to stop stalling and get real health care reform done now.
Tomorrow, February 24th, join our allies from labor unions, progressive blogs, Health Care for America Now, and others in a massive day of action: the Virtual March for Real Health Care Reform.
As our messages are flooding Congress, hundreds of folks will also be marching through Washington, D.C. to Capitol Hill in honor of Melanie Shouse, a MoveOn Council leader in St. Louis who recently passed away from breast cancer—while still fighting her insurance company for coverage, and organizing tirelessly to pass real health care reform.1 Together, we'll send an unmistakable message to Congress.
These marches couldn't come at a more important moment. With President Obama's big health care summit approaching, next week could be a major turning point for health care reform. But it's not yet clear which direction Congress and the White House will head after the summit—continued debate and delay, or working to finish real reform quickly.
That's why we've got to make our voices heard in a big way, right away. This could be our last chance to make a major impact on the health care fight. And to do that in a big way, we need as many people as possible to sign up for the Virtual March in advance, and then to call their senators on the day of the March.
