NC HEALTH REPORT: House Vote Very Close - Call Today (See Rep. Kissell Video, too)
November 6, 2009
By Adam Searing
I've been fighting for real health reform for over twelve years. Others of you out there have been fighting much longer over a century of effort to cover all Americans. Well, soon we will be one giant step closer to that remarkable goal - but only if the US House of Representatives passes health care reform. A vote could come as soon as this weekend or early next week. Still, some of our NC politicians have their heads in the sand. Democratic Representatives Kissell, Shuler and McIntyre all have said they will oppose real health reform and vote against the painstakingly negotiated health bill.
The vote is expected to be remarkably close. Even one vote could make a huge difference. Let's let all of our Representatives know how important it is to vote for health reform - give them a call today.
CHECK OUT OUR VIDEO OF REP. KISSELL: When he was a candidate Kissell was sounding a different tune on health reform than he did two days ago when he announced he would vote against the health reform bill. Check out our latest video.
