Friend -- The fight to save Obamacare has had a big two weeks. Last week, Congressional leaders took the first steps to repeal the law -- despite a growing chorus of doctors, patients, hospitals, and ordinary Americans like you and me warning that doing so could result in 30 million people having their health insurance taken away. In response, OFA volunteers, supporters, and partners are turning up the volume in the fight to protect Obamacare and the progress we've made. Here's just a taste of what we've done since Congress opened session on January 3: -- More than 635,000 people have signed OFA's petition to defend the law that helps so many. -- This weekend, OFA volunteers and partners held 46 events in 25 states with members of their communities who would be personally hurt by the repeal of Obamacare. -- In just a few days, more than 15,000 supporters have used our online call tool to urge senators to reconsider this disastrous scheme. -- Ten thousand OFA supporters like you went to our online letter-to-the-editor tool to make sure their voices were heard in their local papers -- ones that really matter to members of Congress. -- And we're bringing in full-time organizers to bolster the work of our volunteers. Together, they'll make sure senators know that rushing to repeal -- ripping health insurance away from tens of thousands of their constituents -- won't be taken lightly. We've seen some senators start to hesitate, recognizing the magnitude of disaster repeal would be. But Congress is moving fast -- we have to keep their feet to the fire. Now. Donate now to keep the fight to stop repeal going strong. my.ofa.us/Help-Fund-The-Fight We know what we'll see next: some kind of phony plan that they'll call a "replacement" but won't be worth the paper it's printed on. It won't cover everyone that Obamacare covers, it will raise costs on people who can afford it the least, and it won't be able to provide the same protections that millions of Americans have now had for nearly seven years.

Friend --

The fight to save Obamacare has had a big two weeks.

Last week, Congressional leaders took the first steps to repeal the law -- despite a growing chorus of doctors, patients, hospitals, and ordinary Americans like you and me warning that doing so could result in 30 million people having their health insurance taken away.

In response, OFA volunteers, supporters, and partners are turning up the volume in the fight to protect Obamacare and the progress we've made. Here's just a taste of what we've done since Congress opened session on January 3:

    -- More than 635,000 people have signed OFA's petition to defend the law that helps so many.

    -- This weekend, OFA volunteers and partners held 46 events in 25 states with members of their communities who would be personally hurt by the repeal of Obamacare.

    -- In just a few days, more than 15,000 supporters have used our online call tool to urge senators to reconsider this disastrous scheme.

    -- Ten thousand OFA supporters like you went to our online letter-to-the-editor tool to make sure their voices were heard in their local papers -- ones that really matter to members of Congress.

    -- And we're bringing in full-time organizers to bolster the work of our volunteers. Together, they'll make sure senators know that rushing to repeal -- ripping health insurance away from tens of thousands of their constituents -- won't be taken lightly.

We've seen some senators start to hesitate, recognizing the magnitude of disaster repeal would be.

But Congress is moving fast -- we have to keep their feet to the fire. Now.

Donate now to keep the fight to stop repeal going strong.

We know what we'll see next: some kind of phony plan that they'll call a "replacement" but won't be worth the paper it's printed on. It won't cover everyone that Obamacare covers, it will raise costs on people who can afford it the least, and it won't be able to provide the same protections that millions of Americans have now had for nearly seven years.

The next few weeks are critical. We'll need your support to keep this fight going strong.

Pitch in now to help fund the fight:
