- Health Care, Drugs & Insurance
The president motivational speech to uphold the fight for health care reform is writen below.
Building these boats to keep our health care cost floating across the sea was only the beginning.
President Obama's Speech and if you're able to distinguish my voice from his voice within that speech you know my writing well.
This evening, at 11:15 p.m., the House of Representatives voted to pass their health insurance reform bill. Despite countless attempts over nearly a century, no chamber of Congress has ever before passed comprehensive health reform. This is history.
But you and millions of your fellow Organizing for America supporters didn't just witness history tonight -- you helped make it. Each "yes" vote was a brave stand, backed up by countless hours of knocking on doors, outreach in town halls and town squares, millions of signatures, and hundreds of thousands of calls. You stood up. You spoke up. And you were heard.
So this is a night to celebrate -- but not to rest. Those who voted for reform deserve our thanks, and the next phase of this fight has already begun.
We should keep in mind building these boats to keep our health care cost floating across the sea was only the beginning, now to prevent them from sinking we must stir them pass the mountainous waves of filibuster so that we win this fight on health care reform for good.
The final Senate bill hasn't even been released yet the insurance companies are already pressing hard for a filibuster to sink it. Organizing For America (OFA ) has built a massive neighborhood-by-neighborhood operation to bring people's voices to Congress, and tonight we saw the results. But the coming days will put our efforts to the ultimate test. Winning will require each of us to give everything we can, starting right now.
Tonight's vote brought every American closer to the secure, affordable care we need. But it was also a watershed moment in how change is made. We have witnessed that unity is what gives birth to change, and it should be noted that it is only when we choose not to participate that the reverse of progress is possible. So let us keep fighting for change, because without your involvement change is only a figment of our imagination.
Even after last year's election, many insider lobbyists and partisan operatives really thought that the old formula of scare tactics, D.C. back-scratching and special-interest money would still be enough to block any idea they didn't like. Now, they're desperate. Because, tonight, you made it crystal clear: the old rules are changing -- and the people will not be ignored.
In the final phases of last year's election, I often reminded folks, "Don't think for a minute that power concedes without a fight," and it's especially true today. But that's okay -- we're not afraid of a fight. And as you continue to prove, when all of us work together, we have what it takes to win.
Please donate to OFA's campaign to win this fight and ensure that real health reform reaches my desk by the end of this year:
Let's keep making history,
President Barack Obama
