Faith For Health

(copied and pasted from the petition I just signed):

"Our health care system is broken. It’s clear we need a change, but special interests, some claiming to speak for people of faith, are trying to block reform with distortions and distractions.

I just joined “40 Days for Health Reform,” a campaign from the faith community to take back the debate and move real reform forward.

Over the next 40 days, people of faith will run a national TV ad campaign, sign petitions, conduct in-district public meetings reaching over 100 Members of Congress, and even host a national webcast and call to action with President Barack Obama!

You can visit and sign the petition to join the campaign and stay up to date with all these exciting activities."

I'm actually looking forward to the webcast/conference call tomorrow afternoon with the President. I love what this group is doing. On their website, they have a "Learn More" tab that includes documents which break down health care reform and explain the major issues and what people are so worked up about. Its quite informative and worth a few minutes of your time. Go sign the petition.
