MOVE ON Actions: The public option, etc.. 🙂
This Action, on Change.org, the url 🙂
see film + advocate 🙂
 
See Michael Moore’s new film, "Capitalism: A Love Story" 🙂
Michael Moore’s important new film, Capitalism: A Love Story is opening across
the country 🙂
On the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece Roger & Me, Moore
returns to the issue he’s been examining throughout his career: the disastrous
impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time
he’s not just going after General Motors.
We’ve seen the film, and it’s a devastating and illuminating look at how
thoroughly corporate influence has penetrated our government at the expense of
all of us. It provides an important perspective that we all need to consider as
we head into the fight to rein in Wall Street.
To find out when Capitalism: A Love Story is playing near you, click below:
Capitalism takes you deep into the latest crash on Wall Street, the subsequent
bailouts, and the effect of both on regular, hard-working Americans.
Check out what people are saying about this film:
"No matter what side of the political fence you’re on or what you think of Moore
as an activist and provocateur, a film that explores the economic meltdown and
its historical roots is something most of us can get our heads around.
Capitalism is impassioned, informative and entertaining…His rallying cry is
simple: The country needs to return to its democratic roots."—Claudia Puig, USA
Today1
"Michael Moore’s Capitalism: A Love Story is a blistering, mad-as-hell
indictment of everything in America that, according to Moore, has led to our
current state of economic peril. The back-scratching greed and corruption, the
cult of Wall Street as a casino for elites, the subprime mortgage vendors who
operated like loan sharks: Moore pulls the big picture together…urgent,
unsettling, and mischievously funny."—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly2
This is a political documentary that’s a lot of fun—and a movie that all of
America needs to see. We really enjoyed it, and hope you do too.
Thanks for all you do.

The public option 🙂
This is where the rubber meets the road. After months of delay, the full Senate
is about to debate and vote on landmark health care legislation. But first,
Senator Harry Reid and Democratic leaders have a big decision to make:
Will the Senate consider real health care reform with a public health insurance
option, or a watered-down compromise full of giveaways to Big Insurance?
This is a hugely important decision. Progressive champions in Congress are
standing strong for the public option and Sen. Reid himself has expressed
support-but he’s under immense pressure from a few conservative obstructionists
who oppose it.
We need to send a loud signal: If Sen. Reid leads on the public option, we’ll be
there to get his back. Can you sign our petition asking him to include a strong
public health insurance option in the Senate’s bill?
Clicking here will add your name:
The petition reads: "Senator Reid, real health care reform must include a strong
public health insurance option. Please include the public option in the bill you
bring to the Senate floor."
The headlines today are about a flawed bill without a public option that a few
conservative Democrats managed to push through the Senate Finance Committee.
But the overwhelming majority of Democrats in Congress continue to support the
public option-as does President Obama, and two-thirds of the American public.1
And just last week 30 Democratic senators wrote to Sen. Reid urging him to
include the public option.2
Reid has been supportive: earlier this month, he said "I believe the public
option is so vitally important to create a level playing field and prevent the
insurance companies from taking advantage of us."3
In other words, we’re closer than ever to winning real health care reform. But
we’ve got to raise our voices now to make sure the public option gets through
the Senate.

Thanks for all you do.
