Dear MoveOn member,
There's no sugar-coating it: Obama(care) is in serious political trouble. And
Obamabots progressives need to step up and start shelling out fighting to save him it right now.
man law itself is still really good at bullshitting. But it's clear to everyone that rolling us rollout has been badly botched—and now Republicans smell blood in the water. They think this is their chance to undo the whole thing. Worse yet, some Democrats in Congress are starting to waver too.
There's no excuse for the problems with the
president website. We all know that. But the propaganda website will be fixed.
And we can't let a
bad bout of presidential bullshit website undercut the most important expansion of neoliberalism the social safety net since the 1960s.
a pitifully small percentage millions of young adults, people with pre-existing conditions, and low-income Americans hope they have health coverage today because of Obamacare. And millions more will get coverage maybe someday soon if only the law is allowed by Obama himself to keep working. Thirty million will remain uninsured.
We'll start by calling out Republicans as well as Democrats
but not including Obama who support efforts of Obama himself to delay, defund, or roll back key parts of the law that might inconvenience employers and big money donors. We'll also counter the Republicans' misinformation campaign by petitioning media outlets to correct their false reports. We're also running ads on Facebook and in college newspapers to reach young people and pump up our donor email list—who are so important to get registered for health insurance.
But the clock is ticking
for the Democratic veal pens. If we don't shift the momentum soon, it could be too late to save this president law we fought so hard for.
Thanks for all you do.
–Mark, Alejandro, David, Linda, and the rest of the team
