Taking action for Obamacare

There was not one but two big milestones yesterday: President Obama’s 52nd birthday, and the official kick-off of Action August. For OFA supporters, these two events came together with a nationwide Obamacare day of action.

Organizers went out in their communities to talk about the ways that Americans are benefitting from Obamacare, and to push back on myths and misinformation about the health care law. OFA supporters opened their homes to their neighbors, joined together in town centers, local businesses, and even beaches and parks to set the record straight: Obamacare is providing better coverage and lower costs.

And while they were at it, they enjoyed some presidential birthday cake.

Check out some of the action from OFA volunteers yesterday:

Sunday’s events were just the beginning of the grassroots campaign to arm people with the facts, answer questions, and counter what is already a multimillion-dollar effort to spread misinformation and undermine Obamacare. OFA supporters know that there is no better way to get the word out than through grassroots organizing and neighbor to neighbor conversations.

Yesterday was also just the beginning for Action August. If you feel strongly about Obamacare, immigration reform, climate change or other major challenges facing our country, get involved today and make your voice heard during the congressional recess.

Setting the facts straight on Obamacare

In honor of President Obama’s 52nd birthday today, Organizing for Action volunteers across the country are coming together to celebrate in a unique way: spreading the truth about Obamacare. What better way to celebrate the President’s birthday than by getting together and talking about how we can protect one of our proudest accomplishments?

Americans deserves health care that fits their budget and is there when they need it. Obamacare helps them achieve that—and today, we’re making sure people know what it has to offer.

Obamacare fights for better coverage at lower costs to the patient, and ensures patients can receive preventive care services, like vaccinations, mammograms, cancer screenings, annual checkups, blood pressure and cholesterol tests at no cost. More than 70 million Americans have already received free preventive care.

That’s just one example of how Obamacare is working, and today, OFA volunteers are helping spread the word about all the benefits of Obamacare by sharing information and getting the facts out there in their local neighborhoods.

Obamacare has done so much good, yet a lot of Americans are unaware of its benefits. Even worse, opponents are spending millions of dollars trying to convince Americans that Obamacare isn’t working, and they don’t care if they have to lie or mislead to do it. Those opponents might have plenty of money—but we have the facts on our side. It’s up to us to make sure our friends and neighbors know the truth.

Today’s efforts are just the start of a national, month-long series of grassroots events called Action August . You can still be involved in this fight.
