Subject: Tell Reid: No vacation for the Senate before health care reform passes.

Dear Friend,

Seriously? The Senate is going on vacation without passing health care reform?

President Obama has made it very clear that passing meaningful health care reform is his top priority this summer - but on July 23, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the full Senate wouldn't vote on a bill until the fall.

We already have a good health care bill in the Senate from Sen. Kennedy's HELP Committee - a bill that includes a public option. The problem is that we need the Finance Committee to pass a bill to fund the HELP Committee's bill, and Finance Chair Max Baucus is dragging his feet - with the ultimate goal of killing the public option.

I just signed a petition to tell Sen. Reid not to let the Senate go on vacation until they pass a bill that includes a public option. I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action.

OK. I thought it was one you could opt out of with a check mark. There are also various petitions circulating; perhaps you can find one or more that suits you better.
