organizes Lacey

(I received the following e mail from  I thought it might be of interest to see how supporters of a new health care plan think.   It has not been edited.) 

Dear MoveOn member,

Imagine waking up one January morning and reading this headline:

“Obama’s health care plan dies in Congress”

I don’t want to feel like I could have done more. Do you?

We’re already running our biggest campaign since the election. Now we need your help to go even bigger. If you donate today, another MoveOn member will match your donation–whatever you can give will be doubled!

To raise $125,000 today, we need 3 people in Lacey to contribute.
Your donation of $5 will become $10. Double your impact by making
a matched donation today.

In this crucial moment, we’re dramatically expanding our work. We’re
running a million-dollar ad campaign in target states, mobilizing intense
local efforts to push conservative Democrats, and gearing up for a massive
day of action next week. And that’s just part of it.

Today, the Senate is starting a historic debate on a health care reform
bill–it’s far from perfect, but against all odds, it does include a public option!

Conservatives are escalating their attacks. Led by the U.S. Chamber of
Commerce, opponents spent $24 million on ads opposing health care reform in just the past month.

We have to win this. And we can. We’ve got millions of Americans on our
side. And like we’ve seen time and time again in this fight, when regular
Americans mobilize, the results are powerful.

Your contribution today will be matched by another MoveOn member. Please chip in $5. Just click the link below:

Thanks for all you do.

–Nita, Noah, Kat, Ilyse, and the rest of the team
