Hi,Two years ago, my mother, Rhonda, lost her job. Then she lost her health insurance. She needed major surgery, but was so worried about bankrupting our family with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills that she waited. She waited until she couldn't hold off any longer without risking her life.
The Affordable Care Act (aka, "Obamacare") came along just in time. It saved her life, and has already helped many more Americans get desperately needed health care. And it happened because we fought for it in Congress, online, on the phones, and in the streets.
Now that the Supreme Court has upheld Obamacare and its protections, my mother--along with millions of other Americans--can feel confident that they'll be able to get the care they need. And that makes me very thankful.
Let's join together in thanking President Obama for his work to pass Obamacare and protect the lives of millions of Americans.
So I created a petition to President Barack Obama, which says:
Thank you for working to pass Obamacare!Will you sign this petition? Click here:

P.P.S.>>>There is also this e-mail that I would like to pass on. After all, as I have written many times before--the Middle Class is the backbone of society, which means the more young people who graduate from college with a heavy debt burden the worse it is for all of us>>>>
For the last two days, I've been in Washington, D.C., helping deliver over 1 million signatures to Congress in support of the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012—a bill to extend a helping hand to those struggling under massive amounts of student loan debt.It's an amazing moment—the culmination of a huge movement for student debt forgiveness. Please take a moment to make sure your voice is counted among those demanding action from Congress.Click here to sign the petition for student debt forgiveness now.Since 1999, average student loan debt has increased by a shameful 511%. In 2010, total outstanding student loan debt exceeded total outstanding credit card debt in America for the first time ever. In 2012, total outstanding student loan debt is expected to exceed $1 trillion.In response to this crisis, U.S. Representative Hansen Clarke of Michigan has just introduced H.R. 4170, the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012, which would extend a helping hand to those struggling under massive amounts of student loan debt.Armed with stacks of petitions demanding sweeping student debt relief, we're showing Congress that this is an issue they can't ignore any longer.The petition says:Total outstanding student loan debt in America is expected to exceed $1 TRILLION this year. Millions of hardworking, taxpaying, educated Americans are being crushed under the weight of their educational debts, while the economy continues to sputter. Support a REAL economic stimulus and jobs plan. Support the Student Loan Forgiveness Act of 2012 (H.R. 4170).Will you sign the petition?
