National Call-In Day for Health Care Reform
Tuesday, July 28 from 9 A.M. – 5 P.M.
It’s time. Health care costs are skyrocketing, and last fall we voted for real change. Congress needs to support President Obama and pass health care reform in this session.
Call your representative and tell him or her your union and your family want our broken health care system fixed now.
We need to generate tens of thousands of calls to Congress to support the House health care reform bill, H.R. 3200.
Working with our partners in Health Care for America Now (HCAN) we are planning for a massive action on Tuesday – July 28 – to flood the Congress with calls, e-mails, faxes and messages that we need all members of the Congress to support real health care reform NOW, and vote for HR 3200!
Corporate lobbyists are standing between you and your doctor. Don’t let them block reform! It’s time. Call your representative.

We have waited long enough for health care reform. We need to tell the Congress not to go on vacation while 400,000 American citizens will lose the only health care coverage they have.
Join the National Call-In Day for Health Care Reform. Call the Congress on Tuesday, July 28 from 9 A.M to 5 P.M. at this number:
