The House to Vote on Health Care Reform this Week
It is finally here! After decades of waiting and over a year of negotiating, the vote to pass final health reform is now upon us. The House of Representatives will vote to pass the Senate health reform bill at the end of this week. If that vote fails, health reform is dead for this year and likely for years to come. We cannot let that happen. We are too close to finally passing real reform and too much is at stake for people with disabilities.

Even though the House and the Senate have both passed their versions of health care reform, the only way forward for the bill is for the House to vote on the Senate version of the bill. Some representative in the House are debating on whether to vote for or against the bill. Even if they voted for the House bill in the past, many are still weighing their options. Your voice matters now more than ever. Call TOLL FREE 1-800-828-0498
Check how your representative voted, if they voted for the bill, thank them and ask for their vote again. If they didn't vote for the bill, tell them how much it matters to you.
House YES vote (HR 3962)
Thank you for your vote last November in support of health care reform. As your constituent, I am proud to know that you have been a supporter of health reform in the past and hope that you will vote YES for the Senate bill, when it comes to a vote. Now is the time for health care reform. People with disabilities in our community cannot wait much longer. We need affordable, quality coverage that will not be taken away from us, even when we get sick, have a pre-existing condition, or lose our jobs.
Thank you for all of your hard work.
