You Fight, We'll Fight

"Obama needs to put all Legislators' feet to the fire on HCR, and to support them in real efforts to pass good legislation."
How many times have I heard that lament?
Well, folks, I don't expect much support for the effort to do what has been said "MUST BE DONE!" but at least you'll have the satisfaction of having been asked.
Email from OFA:
As we head into an election year, the new strategy for killing reform is claiming that members of Congress who vote for it will suffer at the polls.
For months, our opponents have spread lies about reform to scare voters away. But the simple truth about what reform would actually do -- save jobs, guarantee all Americans affordable, stable coverage, and significantly reduce the deficit -- is something most Americans strongly support.
The question is, come November, will the voters know the facts?
OFA supporters have asked for a way to show every member of Congress that if they fight for reform now, we'll back them up this election season.
That's why we're launching "You fight, we'll fight" -- a volunteer pledge bank where you can commit your time to back up candidates and officials who fight hard for health reform.
We're shooting for 1,000,000 hours pledged to spread the word to fellow voters. And if we get there, we'll publish the total hours pledged in USA Today, so there will be no doubt that health reform is both good policy and good politics.
Can you pledge right away?
