------------------------------------- Sample Letter --------------------------------------
Dear Senator:

In order to ensure affordable health care for all Americans, I ask you to support a strong
version of President Obama’s health care reform, one that:
  • ensures that quality affordable health care is available to all Americans
  • reduces costs – Rising health care costs are crushing budgets
  • guarantees choice of doctors and plans, including a public health care insurance option
  • is national and available everywhere
  • has decision-makers who are government appointed and accountable
  • has bargaining clout to lower rates
  • is ready on day one
I also ask you to put a statement on your web site's home page supporting these seven points.

Co-ops or triggers will only weaken the public health insurance option, and make it ineffective. I ask you to oppose them.

The strong reform of a public health care insurance option is important to me because
[share your personal health care story].

We cannot afford to delay any longer. America needs you to act now to fix our broken
health care system.
