Tired of People Dying Needlessly? You Can Make It Stop!

By Pamela Jean
September 17, 2009

The majority of Americans want health insurance reform with the choice of a public option that keeps insurance companies honest, lowers costs, and increases service. The choice of a public option provides you a non-profit health insurance alternative you can purchase. It's one that can't be canceled if you lose a job or move.

We have only a short period of time to reach the critical mass we'll need to pressure Congress into passing healthcare reform including a public option this year. We need to tell them that including a public option plan in this year's bill is non-negotiable. Here's some very important things you can do, right now, that will have huge impact:

  • Sign the America Can't Wait petition.
  • Donate a few dollars right now to the legislators who have pledged to not sign any bill unless it includes a public option. Donations to these are accepted at They Took The Pledge.
  • Write a personal email to your family, friends, and like-minded co-workers asking them to join the campaign. In your email, ask them to sign the petition at and to consider donating money to public option candidates right away at
  • If you're on Facebook, please put this message in your status on your Facebook wall (or something like this in your own words): Tell Congress to pass public option by majority votes. Tell them by going to and to and also to
  • If you're on Twitter, please tweet, and retweet this message (or something like it): Tell Congress to pass public option. Go to and and also to - #p2 #hcr.
  • Pick more action steps from the The Activist's Complete Guide to Health Care Reform.

Majority votes in Congress can pass a public option. Don't ever let them make you feel helpless or powerless! Just get busy!

We can reach 500,000 signers by October 21st - if we work together to gather support.

Each of the actions above will have immediate impact on this effort. Thank you for taking the time.
