Subj: Tuesday: Show your support in Hillsboro


I wanted to send you an urgent invitation to an important Health Care Listening Forum with Sen. Claire McCaskill this Tuesday, August 11th. She’ll be talking to constituents and gathering feedback — this is an ideal opportunity to make sure your support for health insurance reform is seen and heard at exactly the right time.

Our congressional representatives are back home this month, and they’re facing more and more pressure from special interests on health insurance reform. It’s critical that we get out there and show them where we stand.

I hope you can join us in Hillsboro.

What: Hillsboro Health Care Listening Forum with
Sen. Claire McCaskill

Where: Jefferson College [Field House]
1000 Viking Drive
Hillsboro, MO 63050

When: Tuesday, August 11th
1:00 p.m.

Our representatives are under attack by Washington insiders, insurance companies, and well-financed special interests who don’t go a day without spreading lies and stirring up fear. We need to show that we’re sick and tired of it, and that we’re ready for real change, this year.

Please come to the listening forum, and make sure that the most powerful voices in this debate are those calling for real reform, not angrily clamoring for the status quo.

Seriously? Representatives are “under attack?” That’s what it’s called when they refuse debate, call their constituents names simply because people want to ask sincere questions?
