If the insurance companies win, you lose.

If reform passes without a choice of a public health insurance option, if insurers can keep denying care for pre-existing conditions, and if you can’t afford health insurance, the insurance companies will keep making money while you will keep losing out. It’s really that simple.

We must fight back.

Today, thousands of people across the country are taking the fight directly to the insurance companies. We’ll be presenting them with a list of demands: Stop denying our care and stop using our premiums to lobby against health reform.

Click here to fax your insurance company these demands. A copy will be sent to the Senate Finance Committee, who are debating the “Baucus Bill” today.

For years the insurance companies have expanded their total stranglehold over health care. They make record profits. The make life-and-death decisions. And they’re spending millions of dollars on campaign contributions and lobbyists to defeat reform – nearly $700,000 per day!1

That’s your money they’re spending to defeat health care reform and the choice of a public health insurance option.

You’re a customer and a person with a voice, so you can fight back. Click here to fax your demands to the insurance industry and join thousands who are doing the same thing today.

We’ll make sure your message gets to your insurer, your Members of Congress, and Members of the Senate Finance Committee, who are starting to work on the Baucus Bill – a bill that gives the insurance industry everything it wants.2

Thank you for fighting back against the insurance industry.

Let’s clog up their fax machines! Click here.

With your help, we’ll be the ones who will win.

To your health,

Police intervene in Congressman Pete Olson’s meeting

Congressman “Deer in the headlights” Pete Olson (R-TX) gets run over by his constituents and the police had to take over the meeting. The first part is Olson exploiting a child with a serious heart defect for political points. The second part is the crowd giving him hell for it to the point a scuffle breaks out. The Police are called in and threatens to cancel Olson’s meeting.

Republican Congressman Olson uses child’s heart condition for political and unsuccessful gain

Republican Congressman Olson (R-TX) tells the townhall about a mother who was turned away by the free market doctors for her unborn child’s heart defect. She was denied by the free market doctors but persisted and was able to find a specialized doctor and got a very delicate operation and a heart transplant 17 days after he was born. Olson then claims that the public option would have denied him the needed health care and he would have died! After being challenged he abruptly ended the discussion. Watch as he is challenged, and clueless as to what to say.

Five Ways to Improve Max Baucus’s Bill

By Ezra Klein  |  September 16, 2009
