Dear al,

The clock is ticking. Every hour, another five people die because they don’t have health insurance.1

How many more have to die before everyone in America has access to quality, affordable health care?

Too many have died already. We have waited long enough for real health care reform.

Call your members of Congress today toll free and demand that they support real health care reform NOW: 1-877-235-2465

Now is the time for reform. All across the country, as a part of a nationwide call-in day, tens of thousands of activists like you are calling Congress and demanding real health care reform that:

  • Controls costs.
  • Holds insurance companies accountable.
  • Includes a strong public health insurance option to lower costs and make sure everybody can get health care.
  • Requires employers to pay their fair share.
  • Does not add taxes or other costs for working families—we’re already paying too much.

Working together, we can make sure everyone in America has access to quality, affordable health care.

Call and tell your senators and representative to support real health care reform:

Insurance company lobbyists and the Chamber of Commerce are doing everything they can to slow down the process and ultimately kill reform. Don’t let them block reform. The time for waiting is done. We want quality and accessible health care for all now.

In solidarity,

Warren S. George

ATU International President

P.S. We voted for change last November. Now it’s time for Congress to deliver real health care reform. Call your senators and representative today: 1-877-235-2465
