Tired of the political theater in Washington, DC? Want to tell real stories by real people who need real change from Congress?
As House Republicans make their futile attempt to repeal health reform, join us in launching the “Will You Cry for Me, John Boehner?” campaign.
Because we know Speaker of the House Boehner has an emotional side, we want to tell him our stories of struggle – the stories that make us cry – in hopes that instead of pretending to repeal health reform, we should start talking about real improved Medicare for all reform.
Look – we don’t have anything against crying, but John Boehner cries for the wrong reasons.
American dream: tears.
Millions uninsured: not a drop.
Personally, I shed a few tears of frustration when I opened up nearly $4,000 in medical bills for a doctor ordered biopsy.
We were all stunned and saddened when the Arizona state legislature ended the life-saving transplant program for nearly 100 Medicaid recipients.
We certainly didn’t jump for joy when Blue Cross Blue Shield of California, a not-for-profit insurer, increased premiums by 59%.
Tell your story and we pledge to deliver each and every testimonial directly to Speaker John Boehner…along with a tissue for each of your stories.
But we don’t need just sympathy. We need action. We pledge to continue the Campaign to Strengthen and Protect Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid – and demand that single-payer healthcare be seriously considered to control the deficit and solve the healthcare crisis.
It’s easy to participate. Sign on to this letter here and leave your personal comment for John Boehner – anonymously if you prefer.
If you have a web cam, flip cam, or other video camera, consider filming your testimonial and sending it to us directly. Your video could be featured on the campaign website. Post your video to YouTube (here’s some directions) and email us the link.
Let John Boehner hear from you today. We need a real solution to the healthcare crisis. We need improved Medicare for all.
Yours in health,
