Yes, we had a disappointing weekend.
It appeared that the Administration we worked so hard to elect was backing away from our strongest mandate – true health care reform through a strong public option.
But every cloud has a silver lining!
My group in Buffalo, BuffalObama, that worked so very hard from March of 2007 until election day and after, is re-energized. And it’s not just Buffalo, across the state the grassroots organizers who have been continuing to meet, open offices, make phone calls and support health care reform initiatives are ready to speak up. We are not going to lose this fight!
So, if you were involved in the campaign – knocking on doors, making calls, holding signs, sending in money – it’s time to do it again! Let’s not waste the significant time we put in during the election with inside the beltway politics and insurance company money. We proved we could overcome all of that during the election – we can do it again!
Call your Citizen Action office right now and ask what you can do – we have LOTS of events happening and each one is important to show that our support for a public option is louder and larger than the voices of the right wing crazies.
