CALL TO ACTION

If you believe that the entirety of health care reform can't be undone because of some glitches in the website, you're among friends. Although Obamacare isn't a perfect program, it is an enormous step forward for this country and its very existence is a testament to decades and decades of struggle. As legendary activist Heather Booth notes in this week's episode, above, the one regret former Secretary of State Frances Perkins voiced of her work on the New Deal was that it didn't create health care for all. Now, nearly 100 years later, we are closer to that goal than ever before -- and yet, that's not what you'll hear in the mainstream press.

It's time to cut through the noise. If you've benefitted from Obamacare or know someone who has, we're asking you to tell us about it. Call The Good Fight Hotline at 785-20-VOICE (785-208-6423) and share your story. Listener voicemails will be played on our next episode and we may even turn a few into radio ads. Help us spread the word.
