3. I've Donated To Organizing For American...
In specific reference to the healthcare fight. We know that the AMA and the insurance companies will fight to preserve the status quo. Organizing for America has some great tips (see below) for calling your Congressional reps to support healthcare reform:


Calling Tips
Here are some tips:

Be polite, respectful and clear.
Introduce yourself to whoever answers the phone and let them know you are a constituent mention what city you live in.
Tell them you are calling to say that you strongly support President Obamas three principles for health care reform in 2009. Congress must pass a plan that reduces costs, guarantees choice including the choice of a public insurance option and ensures quality care for every American.
Ask if your member of Congress also supports these three principles.
Example Script for Your Calls
Hello, my name is __________ and I'm a constituent calling from __________ (city or town).

Im calling today because I wanted to let you know that I strongly support President Obama's 3 principles for real health care reform. Any plan Congress passes must reduce health care costs, guarantee choice including a public insurance option and ensure quality care for every American.

Also, I think it's critical to get this done in 2009; it's just too urgent to wait any longer.

Does (Rep./Sen.) _________ support these 3 principles?

Thank you!
