We are at a crossroads.

This week, Congress is working to pass the President's budget. The President included $634 billion in the budget as a down payment on health care reform. Put simply, Congress must pass a budget that funds health care if we want to enact quality, affordable health care for all this year.

Members of Congress are saying that they are not hearing a lot from their constituents about the budget.

The Washington Post reports that this weekend, thousands of volunteers who supported President Obama during the campaign talked to their neighbors about the President's economic plan, which is laid out in the budget.1 Here's how Randall Stagner of Raleigh, N.C. pitched the idea to his neighbors:

"You tell people specifically what the president is doing and encourage them to reach out to their senators and representatives and tell them, 'No kidding, we voted for change, and that includes you.' "

Your Members of Congress need to know you voted for change in November and you mean it! It's time to make your voice heard and make sure President Obama's budget passes, so we can get our economy back on track and win quality, affordable health care for all in 2009.

We've put together some easy-to-use talking points to help you send a strong message to your Members of Congress that you support the President's budget.

Can you give your Members of Congress a call and ask them to support the President's budget?

With your voice, we can make sure we pass quality, affordable health care for all this year.

To your health,

Health Care for America Now

P.S. We delivered your petition to make Karen Ignagni, the CEO of America's Health Insurance Plans, to Keith Olbermann and MSNBC last week. No word yet on whether they will accept our request, but we'll be sure to keep you informed.
