In a web video, available on her website, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) today announced the launch of the Health Care People's Lobby. By going to the Senator's website (www.stabenow.senate.gov) and clicking on the "Health Care People's Lobby", families across Michigan can share their stories and voice their support for change in the current health care system. As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, Stabenow serves an important role in the development of health care reform legislation.
"As the health care reform debate heats up, lobbyists and special interests are already opposing our efforts to make the system work for the American people," said Stabenow. "That is why I am launching the Health Care People's Lobby, to give the people of Michigan a voice in this debate that is so important to families across our state and our country."
By signing up at the website, people can share their stories, which Senator Stabenow will then share with her colleagues, as this important debate moves forward. Those who sign up to join the People's Lobby will also receive updates on health care reform and what they can do to have their voice heard.
"I have always believed that health care is a right, not a privilege and that every American should have access to quality, affordable care," said Stabenow. "By working together we can develop a uniquely American solution that keeps what works in American health care and fixes what's broken. Now is the time to rein in skyrocketing costs and ensure that the special interests don't take over this debate."
