Congressional Democrats Fundraise Off Of Healthcare Fears Just As They Accuse Republicans Of Doing

Letter From Bill Clinton and Paid for by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

(This is an excerpt from the fundraising letter. It seems the money will go to candidates.)

Dear (personalized),

It seems like the 1993 health care debate all over again. Back then, I led the charge for comprehensive health insurance reform. I fought tooth and nail to get it done, keenly aware that millions of Americans were living in fear that a serious illness or injury could spell economic disaster for their families. Americans needed health care reform then and we urgently need it now.....

But, just as I did in 1993, President Obama has run into a buzz saw of special interest opposition to his top domestic policy priority -- health care reform. He is facing off against some of the most powerful special interests in Washington who've launched a furious campaign to preserve the status quo....

Republicans have made a political calculation that they'd rather attack Congressional Democrats with sound bites and misleading characterizations of the President's health care reform plan than work on behalf of the American people.

It's up to us to prevent the Republican Party and their special interest backers from doing whatever they can to prevent this historic opportunity to make quality health care affordable and accessible to all.

(Please give, address, etc.)

Paid for by Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
Signed by Bill Clinton
