Tell Congress that they can't stop now!

Divided We Fail.org--It's time for Health Care and Financial Security for all


Dear Friend,


Are health care reform efforts on the brink of collapse?

The truth is Americans agree on the principles of reform – and there's too much at stake to let Congress fail.

Tell Congress that they can't stop now!

If you read the news, you've probably heard that no one in Washington can agree on anything when it comes to health care reform.

But the truth is most Americans agree on the principles behind reform. The Divided We Fail coalition is living proof.

Phillip, if business interests can work with labor unions and advocates for older Americans to find common ground on health care, why can't Congress?

It's time to remind Congress that there's too much at stake to let reform fail.

So what's keeping our diverse coalition at the table? Just take a look at the statistics.

  • Without reform, the Medicare Trust Fund will be in the red within the next 10 years.
  • Without reform, health care costs for employers will rise 166% in the next decade alone.
  • Without reform, 14,000 people a day will continue to lose their health insurance and be one major illness away from bankruptcy.

Our coalition is still at the table because the price of failure is unacceptable. If we don't make comprehensive reforms to health care now, then when? That's why we're in this fight for meaningful reform until legislation lands on the president's desk.

Tell Congress that you want to see that same commitment from them.

Thanks for standing with the Divided We Fail coalition.

"Very likely," Fed Chairman Bernanke ventured. "Don't believe it," Bernie shot back, citing the 26 million Americans who are out of work, stopped hunting for a job or settled for part-time employment. To watch Senator Sanders Unfiltered, click here

Afghanistan "My fear is that we can get sucked into a quagmire like we did in Vietnam and Iraq," the senator said in response to calls for more troops. "We have not been clear about what our goal is in Afghanistan and what our exit strategy is. The alternatives are not simply to pull out tomorrow or put in tens of thousands of more troops." To watch Bernie on Hardball with Chris Matthews, click here.
Dairy Crisis The Justice Department antitrust chief testified at a hearing in Vermont about reports that Dean Foods dominates 70 percent of the New England milk market. Meanwhile, National Farmers Union members came to Capitol Hill to back Bernie's Senate-passed bill to provide an extra $350 million for struggling dairy farmers. To read a Wall Street Journal report on the hearing, click here.
Campaign Finance Conservative Supreme Court justices may overturn curbs on corporations that pour millions of dollars into attempts to influence elections. If that happens, Bernie told CNN's Rick Sanchez, "You're just giving over our democracy to the wealthiest and most powerful institutions in the world. It's going to open the flood gates for corporate money." To watch the interview, click here.
Surveillance Bernie cosponsored Russ Feingold's bill to rescind the immunity given to telecommunications firms that took part in a Bush-era spying program. "We have got to do everything we can to protect the American people from terrorist attacks, but we can do that and uphold the rule of law," Bernie said. To read more, click here.
Social Security Retirees would get a $250 one-time payment next year under a Sanders bill to make up for the lack of a cost-of-living adjustment. "We are in the midst of a major recession and we cannot forget about the serious economic stress that older Americans are living under," he said. The senator's solution was outlined in a floor speech. To watch it, click here.
Health Care "The American people should have a choice about whether they want to stay with their private insurance or go to a public plan, a Medicare-type plan," Bernie said on Countdown with Keith Olbermann. "If you don't have a public option in competition with the private insurance companies, what is going to stop them from raising their rates higher and higher and higher?"
Pentagon Waste Overhauling the way civilian contractors hurt in war zones are cared for could save $250 million a year, a study found. "The current system for providing health insurance and workers compensation for our military contact workers in Iraq and Afghanistan is broken and wasting millions of dollars in payments to companies like AIG," Bernie said.

A message from Governor David A. Paterson

From the Office of Governor David A. Paterson

Dear Citizen,

     Today�s decision by the Court of Appeals affirming my appointment of Richard Ravitch as our Lieutenant Governor is a victory for all New Yorkers.

     Lieutenant Governor Ravitch is an exemplary public servant and business leader, who has spent his life working on behalf of the people of this State. Time and again he has answered the call to duty, never hesitating to abandon the comforts of private life for the trenches of public service. Thanks to today�s decision, he will be able to serve once again.

     We face serious challenges and this is a time for real leadership. I have asked Lieutenant Governor Ravitch to work on a long-term fiscal recovery plan and to provide recommendations on structural reform of our State�s finances. As we fight our way out of an historic economic crisis, Richard Ravitch�s experience will prove to be invaluable. I look forward to working with the Lieutenant Governor to create jobs, balance our budget, and provide economic security for all New Yorkers.


David A. Paterson
Governor of New York State
