You've got to read these

automat --

A few weeks ago, President Obama asked you to share your personal story about how the health care crisis has affected you and the ones you love. Hundreds of thousands of stories poured in from every corner of the country. The President and I have read through many of them ourselves -- and now I'm encouraging you to do so as well.

Read these powerful, personal stories from people in your area and around the country.

Read these powerful stories

And after you do, please forward this note on to as many people as you can.

For folks who don't yet understand why health care reform is such an urgent priority, these stories make the case far better than any statistics ever could.

For those who support health care reform but haven't yet found the time to join our campaign, these stories provide more motivation than any speech any politician could ever give.

So please read these stories, pass this note on to everyone in your address book, and help us show everyone in America why fixing our broken health care system is a necessity that just can't wait:

Fight health care lies

The Democratic Party
automat --

You may have heard -- the Republican National Committee just released a 60 second television ad attacking President Obama and falsely claiming his plans to reform our broken health care system amount to a "government takeover."

We know better. President Obama has been clear that any health care reform must guarantee Americans a choice to keep or switch their health plans and doctors as they choose -- including the option of a publicly-funded plan for those who want it.

But Republicans know they'll lose an honest debate, so they're spreading deceit and fear. It's up to us to fight back. With your support, we can counter their smears, get out the President's message of reform, and give voice to ordinary Americans trapped in our broken health care system.

automat, we can't fight health care lies without your support. Please donate $5 or more today.


For every misleading Republican ad, we'll counter with a simple but powerful message: thousands of Americans are demanding an end to the political games and deceitful attacks on health care reform.

Health reform isn't a game to the millions of Americans facing bills they can't afford, fighting bureaucracies that stand between them and their doctors, and fearing what might happen if they get sick and don't have insurance.

So it's up to us -- to spread the President's message of reform, to counter distortions and expose lies, and make sure the change we fought so hard for doesn't slip through our fingers.

After all, if we don't have a real discussion about how to expand access, cuts costs, and ensure quality health care for all, the American people will pay the price.

Don't let Republican health care lies go unrefuted -- please chip in to counter their attacks today:

Watch: Breaking news on voting rights

The Democratic Party
automat --

In a decision announced this morning, the Supreme Court upheld the 1965 Voting Rights Act -- a law that has done more to expand and strengthen our democracy than any other.

It's good news -- but the fight to protect voting rights doesn't end there. Attacks on this critical law will not stop. And voter suppression tactics will continue to plague our elections.

I recorded a short video about the fight to protect voting rights -- watch and share it today.

Watch my video about protecting voter rights

In the wake of an historic election, it's easy to reflect on how far we've come. But our democracy is still a work in progress.

I learned that first-hand as Al Gore's campaign manager in 2000.

Despite today's good news, it's clear that this isn't the end of the legal attacks on the Voting Rights Act -- and that the next case could result in the Supreme Court striking down a key protection.

It's time to recommit ourselves to the fight to protect voter rights and reform our electoral system so that no American is ever denied or deterred from the right to vote.

Watch my video, learn more -- and spread the word to your friends and family:

This is why

automat --

Last year, millions of Americans came together for a great purpose.

Folks like you assembled a grassroots movement that shocked the political establishment and changed the course of our nation. When Washington insiders counted us out, we put it all on the line and changed our democracy from the bottom up. But that's not why we did it.

The pundits told us it was impossible -- that the donations working people could afford and the hours volunteers could give would never loosen the vise grip of big money and powerful special interests. We proved them wrong. But as important as that was, that's not why we did it.

Today, spiraling health care costs are pushing our families and businesses to the brink of ruin, while millions of Americans go without the care they desperately need. Fixing this broken system will be enormously difficult. But we can succeed. The chance to make fundamental change like this in people's daily lives -- that is why we did it.

The campaign to pass real health care reform in 2009 is the biggest test of our movement since the election. Once again, victory is far from certain. Our opposition will be fierce, and they have been down this road before. To prevail, we must once more build a coast-to-coast operation ready to knock on doors, deploy volunteers, get out the facts, and show the world how real change happens in America.

And just like before, I cannot do it without your support.

So I'm asking you to remember all that you gave over the last two years to get us here -- all the time, resources, and faith you invested as a down payment to earn us our place at this crossroads in history. All that you've done has led up to this -- and whether or not our country takes the next crucial step depends on what you do right now.

Please donate whatever you can afford to support the campaign for real health care reform in 2009.

It doesn't matter how much you can give, as long as you give what you can. Millions of families on the brink are counting on us to do just that. I know we can deliver.

Thank you, so much, for getting us this far. And thank you for standing up once again to take us the rest of the way.

Sincerely,

President Barack Obama
