Emergency Health Care Reform Briefing With Dr. Howard Dean
Democracy for America
Urgent update on health care: Next week, Congress will begin making the actual decisions about what'll be in a health care reform bill.
Meanwhile, conservative groups have launched a new assault on the president's proposal, including a million-dollar ad campaign claiming that health care will be rationed and “bureaucrats” will “decide the treatments you receive.” [Scroll down to read BFIA's 4/29 post, "Call to Action: Conservatives Spending Millions to Crush Obama's Health Care Plan, and Alta Price's 4/28 BFIA post, Health Care Reform Update: Is the Democratic Leadership Backing Away From the Public Option?]
If real people like us don't get involved in this health care fight now, it could all fall apart. So we're holding an emergency online briefing on Monday night at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. Central with Dr. Howard Dean to make sure we're all ready for the fight ahead, called “What we all need to know to win on health care this year.”
If fixing our health care system is important to you, this is an event you shouldn't miss. All you need to join in is a computer with an internet connection. Can you join us?
Here are the details:

Last time Democrats tried to pass comprehensive health care reform, it failed. And it failed in part because the opposition was better organized and spread a bunch of lies that progressives weren't prepared to rebut.
It's up to us to not let that happen again. This time, we all need to be well-armed with the critical information to keep the right from blocking change. Dr. Dean will give us an inside look at the battle for real health care reform—and the secrets about what it'll take to achieve a historic victory.
With a key Senate committee meeting on Tuesday to start shaping legislation—plus the right wing's escalating attacks—this couldn't be more urgent.
