~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
YOU DID IT!
Now Get To Work and DO IT AGAIN

Dear XXXXX,

Let me be among the first to congratulate YOU. YOU responded and pushed the Weiner amendment in the House Energy & Commerce committee with over 50 thousand faxes, phone calls and messages in the past week. And YOU have done the job! Rep.Weiner's amendment to replace the House bill with the single payer HR 676 will be going for a floor debate and a VOTE in the House in September.

Your pressure on the House did it. Chairman Waxman announced that Speaker Pelosi promised a floor vote and a debate on single payer in the House.

Rep. Weiner nailed it down in this video clip. The url is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0fA2DfwFn4
Waxman to Weiner: Pelosi Will Allow Single-Payer Full House Vote!


How did this happen? YOU DID IT. You sent over 50,000 faxes to Congress since I asked you to support the Weiner amendment a week ago. Today, know that you have succeeded.

**Tomorrow, we start the next battle: get single payer passed on the floor vote in September.*****

**Remember: the more people that see this newsletter, the more people will be there to help when help is needed.



Between now and the September we have lots of work to do. We will all need to pitch in with our phone calls, our emails, our faxes and with our money.

Donations will be needed for this battle more than for any other.
You know the insurance company execs are probably spinning in their freshly-dug graves right now. They are not going to die until we have driven a stake through their hearts.

****We will need TV ads and we can do them, but it costs 500 dollars a day minimum for effective ads. That is 3500 dollars a week and that is about 30 thousand dollars between now and the end of September.


Obama raised $1 million for his health care ads in one week. Dean raised $1 million for his campaign in one week. Surely we, the most committed of all health care advocates, can raise thirty thousand.

There are more than 6 thousand people that see this newsletter. You can donate five dollars for yourself, and five dollars for each of the two neighbors on either side of you who don't donate. You can donate five dollars this week and five dollars next week and five dollars the week after until we have won this fight. But you can donate. When you do, the money will go to single payer and only single payer. Donate today.

3. Well maybe another 50000 faxes to "remind" her.....
the pols tend to forget, especially when the insurance business is throwing cash at them...

Please support the organization in the OP - I have been for months now, and it seems like this is working.
