Organizing for America is Working in New Hampshire for Reform that Puts Families Before Profits
Organizing for America (OFA)-New HampshireDirector Tim Arsenault today released the following statement regarding the choices before the health insurance industry:
“With each coming year, Americans see their insurance rates rising and each hike is cause for more and more Americans to drop their coverage to make room for mortgage payments, college tuition bills for their children and groceries. Growing with these premiums is the divide between New Hampshire families and their insurance companies—the people they trust with the lives and health of their loved ones.
“Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said it best when she told the insurance industry this week that they have a choice to make. They can either launch their next multi-million dollar media campaign to defeat reform and ensure that rates continue to rise for families and business, or they can direct that money toward giving Americans some relief. Instead of putting profits before people, insurance companies should work with the President and Congress to strengthen the aspects of the President’s proposal they like.
“The choice is clear, and the time to act is now. OFA volunteers in New Hampshire have made their choice, and they will continue the ‘Final March for Reform’ to ensure that health insurance reform is passed this year.”
Organizing for America (OFA), a grassroots project of the Democratic National Committee, has launched its “Final March for Reform” in an unprecedented national push to pass comprehensive health insurance reform that expands access to quality, affordable care. OFA's network of volunteers and staff is actively working in all 50 states to promote the President's proposals to strengthen America's middle class by creating jobs, passing health insurance reform, building a clean energy economy, improving education, and reining in the excesses of Wall Street.
