This Monday, November 18th, I want to get on the phone with OFA supporters to touch base on the work you're doing, and what the next few months hold in the fight for change. The work you're doing with OFA is inspiring to watch.
You're the reason we're closer than ever to passing comprehensive immigration reform. You're changing the conversation on climate, putting pressure on those who still deny basic science. And just this month, you helped raise the minimum wage in New Jersey -- and made marriage equality the law of the land in Illinois, my home state.
I want you to know I'm proud to be working alongside you in the fight for change.
There's so much more to do, and we've got a big task ahead of us when it comes to making sure every American can get affordable, quality health care. That couldn't be more important.
Hop on the phone with me this Monday, and let's talk:
making sure every American can get affordable, quality health care
My name is Ashley Dionne and I'm a 26-year-old recent graduate from Michigan.
...I went back to school and got a second degree and finally found work at a gym. I work nights and only get 32 hours a week for eight dollars an hour. I'm unable to find a second job at this time.
I have asthma, ulcers, and mild cerebral palsy. Obamacare takes my monthly rate from $75 a month for full coverage on my "Young Adult Plan," to $319 a month. After $6,000 in deductibles, of course.
Liberals claimed this law would help the poor. I am the poor, the working poor, and I can't afford to support myself, let alone older generations and people not willing to work at all. This law has raped my future. It will keep me and kids my age from having a future at all. This is the real face of Obamacare and it isn't pretty.

"he is the president, this is a public speech."
I tell people this line a lot, if nothing else show respect the office. I do not have to hold respect for his policies or even the man. However, he is still the President.
