Obama, finally, gets passionate on health care

Now that we’re in the final push for health care reform, we’re finally starting to see Obama show some spunk. It’s taken over a year to get there, but we’re finally getting a glimpse of the guy we elected. One can only hope that Sunday’s vote is successful, and that he continues in the same way to address financial reform and the economy.

And I’m generally not a big fan of online signature campaigns, but, assuming you’re already contacted your representatives in D.C., please consider signing MoveOn’s emergency petition on health care. This whole thing is going to be decided in less than 24 hours, and we still need votes in the House. We can’t afford to just sit by today and let the lobbyists in D.C. decide what American health care should look like. If this legislation passes, 32 million more americans will have health insurance, and insurance companies will no longer be able to drop you once you become ill, or keep you from being insured because of a preexisting condition. This bill is by no means perfect, but it’s a step forward for American families, and we absolutely have to pass it. So, if you haven’t written to your Congressperson yet, please follow that link above and let them know how you feel right now. And, if you have written to your member of Congress, please take a moment and sign this petition. We’re within reach of making history tomorrow, and we can’t afford not to give it everything we’ve got.

    Wow, I think that speech just might have restored some of my faith in Obama…

    Dems in the house are saying that, as of right now, they have the votes necessary to pass this into law.

    Just a quick shout out to remind everyone that they only have a few hours left to say their final goodbye to their grandparents.
