Petition to You
Tell Your Senators to Support Medicare-for-All   :)   The Senate is picking up the health care reform debate where the House left off. Make sure your senators hear from you and not just insurance industry lobbyists.   :)   Take action right now!   :)Email your senators and ask them to support single-payer, "Medicare-for-All" reform. http://action.citizen.org/t/6693/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=27576Tell 10 friends how to take action, too.Today, 120 Americans will die because they lack health insurance. That's 45,000 Americans every year. America is a pay or die country. If you can't afford to pay ever-rising insurance premiums, you could die.It doesn't have to be this way.But the legislation working its way through Congress will do little to change it. The best-case scenario will leave millions of Americans uninsured, costs will continue to spiral out of control, and insurance corporations will continue to generate obscene profits by denying coverage to the sick and injured.Single-payer, "Medicare-for-All" reform will break the stranglehold insurance companies have on you and your family. It will cover everyone. Everybody in, nobody out.We have to act now!Email your senators and ask them to support single-payer, "Medicare-for-All" reform.Tell 10 friends how to take action, too.We just can't wait any longer. The body count is rising.Together, we can win this fight.Onward to "Medicare-for-All"!Angela, Glenn & RickYour advocates at Public Citizenfeedback@citizen.org Stay informed and speak out when it counts.

All NOW Actions http://www.now.org/actions/ Join NOW at National Lobby Day and Rally to Stop Stupak-Pitts   :) http://www.now.org/issues/health/stupak_form.html On Wednesday, Dec. 2, abortion rights supporters will gather in Washington, D.C., to lobby the Senate and rally for health care reform that ensures women's access to reproductive health care. NOW and our allies are calling on YOU to join us on Capitol Hill to demand that Congress not trade away women's reproductive rights in negotiations over health care reform. The Stupak-Pitts Amendment, which passed in the House, greatly limits women's ability to access abortion coverage. Similar language must not be included in the Senate version or the final bill. We want to know if you're planning to be at the National Lobby Day and Rally and/or if you're interested in other volunteer opportunities on this critical issue. Fill out our volunteer online form NOW. http://www.now.org/issues/health/stupak_form.html Don't worry if you've never lobbied before -- just bring yourself and your passion (and your friends and family, too), and we'll help you with the rest!

We are fighting back in the war on women's health care needs and rights -- will you help? Watch our new TV ad, "No Joke," which will run on MSNBC this week, and take action to stop the Stupak-Pitts amendment cold in the Senate. http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5971/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=1299 The ad features stand-up comic Cory Kahaney of Last Comic Standing and puts forth a simple principle: When you need medical care, your insurance should be there to pay for it. Last week in the House, the harmful and dangerous Stupak-Pitts Amendment passed as part of the healthcare reform bill. The Senate is expected to debate a similar amendment on the floor as part of its health reform debate. The amendment tramples on women's health care needs and violates President Obama's promise that women will be able to keep the insurance coverage that they have today. TAKE ACTION NOW! There will be a show-down in the Senate when amendments similar to Stupak-Pitts are introduced. We must make our voices heard. http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5971/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=1299 A majority of private insurance plans today provide coverage for abortion. But if our opponents win, it will be virtually impossible for private insurance companies that participate in the new healthcare reform to offer abortion coverage to women. Stupak-Pitts must be stopped in the Senate. Tell Congress not to ban the healthcare coverage for abortion that millions of women already have. And when you're done, send the video along to your friends and family asking them to act for women's health and support the Center's work to stop Stupak-Pitts. We can -- and will -- win this fight. Thanks, as always, for all you do, Nancy Northup President http://reproductiverights.org/en  120 Wall Street 14th Floor | New York, NY 10005 US       Stopping the Stupak amendment   :) Don't let the anti-choice Stupak amendment become law.   :) http://www.ppaction.org/campaign/hcr09foc_af/xkwgn62p77k375d?qp_source=hcr09foc%5fe1%5faf Take a stand for women's health and sign our petition to President Obama, Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi. It's the first step to stopping the Stupak ban and protecting women's access to abortion coverage.   :)  You're furious, and we hear you. Tens of thousands of Planned Parenthood supporters have expressed disappointment, sadness, and anger since the House adopted the anti-choice Stupak abortion ban to its health care reform bill. Believe me, I'm just as angry as you are. And I want to take the outrage that supporters of women's health are feeling and turn it into action. If we join together, we can still stop the Stupak ban and other efforts to undermine choice. The first step is simple, but it will be effective: sign our petition to President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi. http://www.ppaction.org/campaign/hcr09foc_af/xkwgn62p77k375d?qp_source=hcr09foc%5fe1%5fafIf the Stupak ban becomes law, it will outlaw private abortion coverage for millions of women and prohibit coverage in the public option. That means that millions of women who currently have abortion coverage will lose it — and millions more will be locked out of the comprehensive coverage they have long deserved, even if they are paying for the entire cost out of pocket. It will be the most far-reaching restriction of abortion access in decades. We have to stop it now. Take action to stop the Stupak ban before it's too late. Click here to sign our petition. When you speak out, lawmakers listen. On Sunday, I asked Planned Parenthood supporters to contact President Obama and ask him to stand up for women — and more than 30,000 of you answered the call. The next day, President Obama reaffirmed his commitment to women's health and stated plainly that Congress must pass a health care reform bill that does not impose any further restrictions on women's ability to choose a health plan that meets all of their health care needs, including abortion care. Now, our focus turns to the Senate. We are demanding that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ensure that language similar to the Stupak ban does not become part of the Senate bill. Help us make it clear that the Senate must protect women's access to complete reproductive care, including abortion. Those of us who support women's health and right to choose must come together and demand that women be treated fairly under health care reform. We need to tell our leaders — including President Obama, Majority Leader Reid, and Speaker Pelosi — that women must decide for themselves what kind of insurance coverage they can buy and what kind of health care they need. Anything less is unacceptable. Please, sign our petition right now — and know that this is just the first step in what will surely be a long fight for women's health. Over the coming weeks, I'm going to ask you for help again and again. And on December 2, thousands of supporters will gather at the Capitol to speak with one voice and tell our leaders: health care reform must protect access to abortion coverage. I hope you'll stand with us, today and throughout this crucial campaign. Thank you so very much for all you do for the women, men, and teens who rely on Planned Parenthood.

Thank you. visit plannedparenthoodaction.org © 2009 Planned Parenthood® Action Fund | Privacy Policy       Just Say No to the Trigger   :) Dear MoveOn member, Apparently, some in Washington think our current health care system is working fine. Despite the consistent popularity of the public option in surveys and its momentum in Congress, a few nervous senators are still trying to get rid of it. Their latest idea is to replace it with a "trigger," a provision that could kill the public option through indefinite delay. Even though big insurance companies have proven they're uninterested in solving America's health care crisis, these senators think they should be given more time to clean up their act. Sen. Conrad is a key vote on health care, so if he speaks out against the trigger, it would provide a big boost to the public option. Creating a public option immediately should be especially important to him, since 56,000 North Dakotans go without health insurance each year1 and more than 60% of bankruptcies across the country are caused by medical expenses.2 We need to get the facts out and show Sen. Conrad that voters in North Dakota support a real public option and won't accept a weak imitation. Can you send a letter to the editor of your local paper about how the trigger is a bogus substitute and Sen. Conrad needs to get behind reform with the choice of a real public option? http://pol.moveon.org/lte/lte_t.html?lte_campaign_id=119&zip=58102&id=17935-1718406-9xIM03x&t=3 Our tool makes writing a letter really simple. You can send the letter right from our website-it only takes a few minutes. If you've never written a letter to the editor before, now is the time to send your first. The letters page is one of the most widely read-and most important-in local newspapers. Members of Congress and their staffs read it to understand how their constituents are feeling and will be looking particularly closely over the Thanksgiving break. Here are some points about the trigger you can include in your letter: Our health care system is in crisis now. A trigger could unnecessarily delay a public health insurance option for years-or kill it entirely by delaying it indefinitely. Thousands of families in our state lack insurance coverage3 and they can't afford to wait for the increased competition and lower costs a public option would deliver.4 Insurance companies are masters at gaming the system-we've all seen how they avoid paying out claims and covering people who are sick. If they know what criteria would trigger the creation of a public option, they'll do just enough to avoid the trigger, without changing the way they do business. Congress has tried to implement triggers and other "fallback" options in health care legislation before, and they've consistently failed. As one study put it, "History teaches us that trigger mechanisms are difficult to implement, too narrow in their focus, and can too easily be reversed if the political landscape changes."5 Click here to get started on your letter: http://pol.moveon.org/lte/lte_t.html?lte_campaign_id=119&zip=58102&id=17935-1718406-9xIM03x&t=4 Thanks for all you do. -Daniel, Peter, Ilyse, Kat, and the rest of the team Sources: 1.

PAID FOR BY MOVEON.ORG POLITICAL ACTION, http://pol.moveon.org/ . Not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.       Response to Passage of House Health Bill   :) Dear Healthcare-NOW! Supporter: On Saturday, November 7, 2009, the House passed H.R. 3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act, to much celebration by the Democratic party. Healthcare-NOW!'s view, however, is that the House bill is a gift to the insurance industry at the further expense of the people of this nation. The bill's advocates claim it will cover an additional 36 million people, subsidize the cost of insurance for families up to 400% above the poverty level, increase Medicaid coverage to 150% above the poverty level, close the Medicare donut hole by 2019, place a surcharge on individuals making more than $500,000 and couples making more than $1,000,000, will end rescissions and pre-existing conditions. What the Democrats fail to mention is the bill leaves millions of people uninsured, allows medical bankruptcies to persist, criminalizes and fines the uninsured, increases the number of underinsured, does nothing to contain the sky rocketing costs, blocks women from their reproductive rights, transfers massive public funds to private insurance companies strengthening their control over care, protects pharmaceutical companies' superprofits at patient expense, fails to reclaim the 31% of waste in our system, expands Medicaid without regard to the state budget crises, discriminates based on immigration status and age, and sets up several levels of care covering less for those without the ability to pay. Those who have coverage will increasingly find care unaffordable and will go without. The whole system will inevitably fail from being fiscally unsustainable. So is the House bill better than nothing? "I don't think so," writes Marcia Angell, M.D., former editor of the New England Journal of Medicine. "It simply throws more money into a dysfunctional and unsustainable system, with only a few improvements at the edges, and it augments the central role of the investor-owned insurance industry. The danger is that as costs continue to rise and coverage becomes less comprehensive, people will conclude that we've tried health reform and it didn't work. But the real problem will be that we didn't really try it. I would rather see us do nothing now, and have a better chance of trying again later and then doing it right." Given that the bill does nothing to contain or reduce rising costs or end the private health insurance industry's dominance, we hoped that the Progressive Caucus would stand strong. But they did not. All but two of H.R. 676's cosponsors voted for H.R. 3962 -- Rep. Eric Massa [D-NY] and Rep. Kucinich [D-OH]. Rep. Massa stated, "At the highest level, this bill will enshrine in law the monopolistic powers of the private health insurance industry, period. There's really no other way to look at it." Despite telling single-payer advocates that Congressman Weiner's single-payer amendment could not go to vote because it would open the floodgates for regressive amendments on abortion and immigrant access, the Democratic leadership allowed votes on both. Prior to the vote on H.R. 3962, the Stupak Amendment passed that will prevent women receiving tax subsidies from using their own money to purchase private insurance that covers abortion and in many cases will prevent low-income women from accessing abortion entirely. "The House of Representatives has dealt the worst blow to women's fundamental right to self-determination in order to buy a few votes for reform of the profit-driven health insurance industry," writes Terry O'Neill, President of National Organization for Women. "We must protect the rights we fought for in Roe v. Wade. We cannot and will not support a health care bill that strips millions of women of their existing access to abortion." Healthcare-NOW! fought to win a fair and open debate on healthcare reform including the merits of a single-payer system. This has not yet happened, but the advocacy for this system has greatly impacted the debate in meaningful ways. We need to continue to build the grassroots movement for single-payer, not-for-profit, national healthcare. We look forward to much brain-storming at our upcoming national strategy conference in St. Louis this weekend, and the opportunity to move forward with renewed energy, creative ideas, and resolve. Meanwhile, we have the opportunity NOW to continue to support the Sanders' Single-Payer Amendment to be introduced in the U.S. Senate, Congressman Kucinich's efforts to get the state single-payer amendment back in when the House and Senate bills are reconciled, and the efforts of the Mobilization for Health Care for All. http://mobilizeforhealthcare.org/ Thanks for all that you do,Healthcare-NOW!

The House has included the Indian Health Care Improvement Act as part of its health insurance reform bill (H.R. 3962). This legislation would provide services long available to the rest of the country to American Indians and Alaska Natives, including mental health services, long term care, and hospice. It would also improve access to care. Ask your representative to support Indian health and the House health insurance reform bill: http://action.fcnl.org/r/89969/46386/0       And, stop Stupac Amendment, and any variations there of.  As well, no trigger, because triggers don't get pulled.  Also, please, advocate for singlepayer healthcare, with Community First Choice Option and CLASS Act (Community Choice Act for the handicapped, elderly, autistic, disabled, etc.); H.R. 676 & S. 703.   reality Related group and actions   :) http://www.singlepayeraction.org//join.html  Read more

Petition to Friends of The QNS
This is a community effort to reactivate LMB (Lower Montauk Branch) of LIRR for NYC Transit fares, local stops from Jamaica to Long Island City. Queens has a transportation problem that can be solved! This new transit project – 8.5 miles of track – would connect residents to booming industrial hubs. The QNS is expected to serve 6.6 million passengers annually. A chance like this won't come along very often! The QNS would cut right through a huge area of the borough where there is no train service – in fact, it would increase the area of Queens served by the subway by 13 percent – and even connect to the M train for greater connectivity to the rest of the subway system.Read more

Petition to Miiverse, Nintendo
Lots of people use miiverse as a fun way to communicate with others, but if someone was to post something a little offensive, they'd get banned. That wasn't a problem at first because you could just make a secondary account and continue, not making that same mistake. But now, this is outrageous. Now if you get banned, doesn't matter how, your entire console is banned. What if your little sibling didn't know the rules and get everyone banned? This is why you should support this petition. Everyone was happy before this and everyone now hates miiverse. So if you support this, we have a chance to be happy again. Read more

This caused brain injury and irreparable damage to his airway, resulting in Cerebral Palsy and tracheostomy and gastrostomy dependence. Mason wasn’t supposed to live; today, he is 17 :) Mason was on life support in our living room until the age of 2 where I very carefully weaned him from his ventilator. He was extremely delayed in all physical and mental capacities. I felt deeply that the one thing Mason really needed was to experience fun and joy in life, a life that was destined to be cut short. He (We) had far too many hours logged into going to doctors and enduring surgical procedures!By age 3, No matter what we tried, Mason was still unable to sit up or bend at his waist. It was then that I discovered a unique alternative physical therapy treatment called Hippotherapy. (Hippo is Greek for horse; no, we were not signing him up to ride hippopotamuses!)I believed that Hippotherapy would fulfill two of my wishes for Mason: 1) to experience joy in life and 2) to find a way to motivate him to tolerate therapy... I found that Hippotherapy is the MOST AMAZING AND EFFECTIVE therapy I had ever witnessed. As difficult as the first 10 sessions, Mason thoroughly enjoyed his next 14, learning that riding was meant to be FUN! and upon returning home after that 24th session, I placed Mason on the floor of our living room where he SAT UP INDEPENDENTLY! There is NO OTHER therapy that could have produced this outcome for my son. It was a miracle!By age 5 Mason was walking with the assist of a walker and at the end of his 7th year, he took his first independent steps. TRULY REMARKABLE!Mason is my hero. He is the hero for many who have come to know him here at the Ligonier Therapeutic Center. I mean, who knew an old horse named Rusty would become Mason’s most effectual therapist?!It's hard to be a good parent. But parents raising children with special medical needs or raising a child with severe behavioral needs such as Autism - we are on constant alert, truly 24/7. The Ligonier Therapteutic Center was built to offer families a peaceful place, a non-judgmental atmosphere, a low stress, healing environment. Today, I am an EAGALA Certified Equine Specialist, working with all ages and levels of mental health challenges. I work alongside other Equine Specialists and Mental Heath Practitioners to offer the best of physical and mental health and wellness in Ligonier and across Westmoreland County, PA.Let's change lives together.
