The Final Push for Healthcare reform: What YOU can do

The Final Push

Yesterday, President Obama called for a Congressional vote on health care reform, saying: "I will do everything in my power to make the case for reform. And I urge every American who wants this reform to make their voice heard as well."
We intend to take those instructions pretty seriously.
