Five Democratic Members of Congress from New York are putting the brakes on President Obama’s historic campaign to reform our broken healthcare system. Healthcare legislation that would expand healthcare coverage for millions of Americans is gaining steam in Congress. But these five New York Representatives are stalling the bill because it pays for reform with a modest tax on the rich. Sign the petition here: This is our best chance for healthcare reform in a generation, but now these five Democratic members of Congress are putting real reform on hold – even though less than 1% of all New Yorkers would be affected by the tax.
We can fight back – but we have to act fast. I just signed the Working Families Party’s petition calling on the five Representatives to put healthcare reform above protecting the wealthy. Will you join me?
