We did it!
Because of the fierce commitment and unrelenting determination of grassroots Democrats like you, the U.S. House of Representatives made history Saturday night by passing the Affordable Health Care for America Act.
This landmark bill — passed on the 3rd Anniversary of the Democrats winning our Majority in the House — features a strong public option, protection for Medicare and holds powerful insurance corporations accountable.
However, our work is not yet done. The well-funded opponents of reform have already gone on the attack against our courageous Democrats who stood up and voted for this legislation. It is critical that we have the resources to stand strong against these dishonest attacks.
Stand with Democrats against the powerful insurance lobby and their Republican allies who overwhelmingly voted no on health care reform. They have already launched a huge campaign filled with half-truths, distortions and misinformation in a desperate final attempt to scare the American people and undermine support for Congressional Democrats.
Insurance company CEOs know the days of maximizing their profits by denying care to the sick are numbered. They fear for their massive profits and obscenely large pay checks. And Republicans believe demonizing Democrats who voted for health care reform is the only way back to power.
Real change has come to Washington because you and your fellow Democrats are standing up and demanding it. We are in a historic moment. Don’t hold back. Get involved. Please support the DCCC right now.
Speaker of the House
