Paulo Augusto --
The chance to finally reform our nation's health care system
is here. While Congress moves rapidly to produce a detailed
plan, I have made it clear that real reform must uphold
three core principles -- it must reduce costs, guarantee
choice, and ensure quality care for every American.
As we know, challenging the status quo will not be easy. Its
defenders will claim our goals are too big, that we should
once again settle for half measures and empty talk. Left
unanswered, these voices of doubt might yet again derail the
comprehensive reform we so badly need. That's where you come
When our opponents spread fear and confusion about the
changes we seek, your support for these core principles will
show clarity and resolve. When the lobbyists for the status
quo tell Congress to hold back, your personal story will
give them the courage to press forward.

American families are watching their premiums rise four
times faster than their wages. Spiraling health care costs
are shackling America's businesses, curtailing job growth
and slowing the economy at the worst possible time. This has
got to change.
I know personal stories can drive that change, because I
know how my mother's experience continues to drive me. She
passed away from ovarian cancer a little over a decade ago.
And in the last weeks of her life, when she was coming to
grips with her own mortality and showing extraordinary
courage just to get through each day, she was spending too
much time worrying about whether her health insurance would
cover her bills. She deserved better. Every American
deserves better. And that's why I will not rest until the
dream of health care reform is finally achieved in the
United States of America.
Please add your name to join my call. Then share your
personal story about why you too will not rest until this
job is done.
Last November, the American people sent Washington a clear
mandate for change. But when the polls close, the true work
of citizenship begins. That's what Organizing for America is
all about. Now, in these crucial moments, your voice once
again has extraordinary power. I'm counting on you to use
