In it, but not of it. TPM DC
This week, Senator Blanche Lincoln wrote a letter to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette to affirm her support for real health care reform, including a quality, affordable public insurance option available to those who want it.
This is great news for the Arkansas families and small businesses who need our broken health care system fixed. But the special interests and lobbyists for the status quo will only intensify their pressure -- and we need to show Senator Lincoln that her constituents appreciate her courage and are counting on her to stand firm.
Please take a moment and call Senator Lincoln. She has offices across the state, and your call will be most effective if you call the one nearest to you:
Little Rock: 205-375-2993
Washington, DC: 202-224-4843

When the senator hears that folks from across the state are calling her offices and encouraging her to stand strong, she'll know she has the public backing in Arkansas to take whatever the Washington lobbyists and entrenched opponents of reform can throw at her.
Spiraling health care costs are overwhelming families, shackling businesses, and leaving millions without coverage. That's why President Obama is pushing for action this year -- and why we need Senator Lincoln to stay strong and stand up for the people of Arkansas.
Thank you for all your hard work,
