If you’ve never called Congress before, don’t worry – it’s easy! When a staff member answers your call, you can say:
- My name is ________ and I am calling from _________.
- 80 million Americans are living with heart disease, stroke or other cardiovascular disease today and they need health care reform that ensures that health care is accessible, affordable, and adequate.
- I stand with the American Heart Association and its American Stroke Association division in urging all members of Congress to vote “yes” on meaningful, affordable health care reform THIS year.
- Thank you for passing this message on to my legislator.
All of us have a very real stake in Congressional decisions about health care reform—and making this quick call can make a big difference!
