Dag 3-5 av ”Final March for Reform”

Efter de två första dagarnas mobilisering och aktiviteter inom ramen för ”Final March for Reform” – Obamas och Demokraternas kampanj för att få igenom förslaget till sjukvårdsreform – är det nu dags för nästa steg. Huvudsakligen handlar kampanjaktiviteterna idag och de närmaste dagarna om en telefonkampanj, där sympatisörer samlas för att tillsammans ringa runt och mobilisera andra att engagera sig och ringa ”sina” politiker. Nedan följer det senaste mailet som jag fått inom ramen för denna kampanj; ett intressant fall att studera om man är intresserad av politiska kampanjstrategier- och tekniker.

Jesper —

The Final March for Reform is going strong — yesterday, OFA supporters made the phones ring off the hook in Congressional offices on Capitol Hill and across the country. But for every member of Congress, there are eight anti-reform lobbyists swarming Capitol Hill — and the upcoming vote is still too close to call.

So in these crucial, final days, we must make sure the voices of constituents break through the lobbyist attacks. And here’s the plan to make it happen:

As the next step in the Final March for Reform, OFA supporters like you will be gathering at volunteer phone banks across the country. We’ll be calling supportive voters in critical districts nationwide, asking them to reach out to their representatives and express their strong support for reform. A local OFA organizer will be on hand at every event, and no experience is required.

Here’s how to join in: First, RSVP for an event near you — there’s one in Gainesville, on March 16th. Before you go, make sure to invite friends to come with you, or help them find an event in their area on our website. Then join with local supporters at your event and reach out to as many voters as you can — each call makes a vital difference.

As we speak, insurance-industry lobbyists are deploying from their emergency base at the D.C. Ritz-Carlton, banging down the door of every Congressional office on Capitol Hill to derail reform and preserve their ability to jack up premiums and deny care to those in need.

In the old Washington, that would have been an unstoppable barrage.

But thanks to your unprecedented organizing, the lobbyists have finally met their match: the American people.

So let’s get out there, and make sure the people’s voice is heard.

Please sign up to join the Final March for Reform event in Gainesville, on March 16th:
