VIDEO: My Little Pre-Existing Condition

With debate over health care taking a sickening turn in the Senate today with Joe Lieberman's blocking of meaningful reform, we're now facing the possibility that one of the most important pieces of legislation in our lifetimes has hit a dead end. Right now is the time to send lawmakers a clear message: support the passage of health care reform, and we will stand with you in 2010 and beyond; obstruct it, and we will work to replace you.
The Progressive Video Project, a volunteer group of professional filmmakers, has begun producing a series of video spots aimed squarely at these recalcitrant congresscritters. The second spot, "My Little Pre-Existing Condition," is posted above. The first, "One Voice," can be seen here:
More will follow in the weeks to come. In addition to distributing them virally, we are working with ActBlue to raise funds to air them in the states of the lawmakers currently in the spotlight: Mary Landrieu, Blanche Lincoln, Ben Nelson - and especially Joe Lieberman.
We are open to suggestions. We are open to volunteers. And we are open to any advice that will help to get this message out at this critical time.
Thanks for your attention.
