National Call-in Day for HR 676
February 12, 2009     Lincoln’s Birthday

Dear Friend,

The Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Healthcare is encouraging everyone to participate in the next National Call-in Day for HR 676. Mark your calendars.

February 12, 2009: Call Congress – Congressional switchboard: 202-224-3121 – ask for your representative’s office, and the President – 202-456-1414

If your member is a current co-sponsor,  thank your rep. and ask him or her to stand firm for HR 676 and actively seek additional co-sponsors.

If your member was a co-sponsor in the last Congress, ask him or her to sign on immediately as a co-sponsor in this Congress.

If your member has yet to co-sponsor HR 676, ask him or her to please become a co-sponsor, select one or two talking points here.

In a letter to Col. William F. Elkins written November 21, 1864, Lincoln wrote: “I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

In celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, remind your member of Congress to honor his words and heed his warning as we look to reform his precious nation’s healthcare system.

Sincerely,

P.S. Don’t forget to call (202-456-1414) or fax (202-456-2461) the White House to make sure our current President recalls how very troubled another young lawyer from Illinois was as he viewed the future of the nation under the control of the monied and corporate interests just like those swirling in the for-profit health insurance industry.
