Here’s an important call to action today from Ocean State Action. We need your help sticking it to the insurance industry. There’s some real momentum for the public insurance option, but our Senators need to hear from YOU to make it happen.
Please call Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse TODAY! Dial tollfree 1-877-264-4226 or click here.
Tell your Senators: “We’re counting on you to make sure that we end up with a Senate health care bill that requires employers to pay their fair share for health care, that makes health care truly affordable for all Americans, and gives us all the choice of a public health insurance option. Please sign onto Senator Brown’s letter calling on Senate Leadership to include the choice of a public plan in the final Senate bill.
Why it is critical to make this call today:
While Senators Reed and Whitehouse helped move forward affordable health coverage options and a public plan in the HELP committee, the more conservative Senate Finance Committee has legislation that without a public plan and with less support to make insurance affordable for middle-income families. We need our senators to join Senate Sherrod Brown’s letter to senate leadership to make clear that a large number of members of the Senate’s majority caucus want to see a public plan in the final bill.
Call Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse today! 1-877-264-4226 or click here.
There will also be a vigil today at 4:30pm outside of UnitedHealthcare at 475 Kilvert Street in Warwick to call for real reform that benefits people, not the profits of the insurance industry.
