"I have President Obama on the line"

Dear Arnaldo:

Our records show that you live in California's 23rd district.

"If we don't get it done this year, we're not going to get it done."

That's how President Obama -- briefing leading Organizing for America volunteers in our health care effort -- described our fight to pass real health care reform in 2009.

Then, yesterday, the President took the next step by writing congressional leaders to re-emphasize his principles for real health care reform, including his commitment to creating a public insurance option available to all.

Now it's up to us to show massive public support for the President's call -- and we have to move quickly. Can you add your name today?

Declare your support for the President's health care reform principles.

You can also listen to the President's call with leading Organizing for America volunteers. It was an incredible moment, and I'd like you to be a part of it.

This signature drive is so urgent because Congress is working as we speak to hammer out the details for health care reform.

What comes out of this process will make or break our one shot at real reform.

Washington is swarming with insider lobbyists, and we have to show that regular people in every state and every district are paying attention.

So please add your name to show you support President Obama's call that any final reform plan must reduce costs, guarantee choice -- including the choice of a public insurance option -- and ensure quality health care for every American.

President Obama put it best on the call: "This is our big chance," he said, "to prove that the movement that started during the campaign isn't over -- we're just getting started."

And that's exactly what we're going to do.

Thank you for standing with us again,

David Plouffe
Organizing for America

P.S. -- Please forward this note around to friends and family who want to listen to the President's briefing from Air Force One and then add their voice to our campaign. This is going to take all of us.
