If you could send this out to your list I would really appreciate it.

Organizing for America is currently organizing a state-wide canvass throughout Michigan in order to collect health care declarations affirming the public’s support of President Obama’s agenda. We currently have three teams working throughout Oakland County on Saturday and would love as many volunteers as possible.

In the last 48 hours, the prospects for real, comprehensive health care reform this year have gotten significantly better. On Monday, the President summoned leaders of Congress to the White House to press for his timetable on health care reform. The President’s message: “I just want to put everybody on notice because there was a lot of chatter during the week that I was gone: inaction is not an option.” The message was apparently heard loud and clear. Yesterday, the three chairmen of the House committees with jurisdiction over health care reform formally introduced legislation that does not increase the deficit, would lower premiums, includes a public option, and is estimated to cover 97% of Americans. Then, just this morning, the Senate HELP Committee passed its version of health reform legislation, which also contains a strong public option.

We look forward to hearing from all those who are interested in working this Saturday, additionally, if anybody is interested in finding out more about events around your community please visit http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/health-care-action-center/?source=feature
