Dear Daniel,

On March 9 Big Insurance CEOs are gathering for a fancy conference in Washington, D.C.1 They’re probably planning to congratulate themselves for having all but killed efforts to reform health care.

But we’ve got a surprise planned for them: We’re organizing a posse of citizens’ to surround their fancy hotel and arrest these CEO-scallywags for a long list of other crimes against patients and the people.2

To make it work, we’re renting buses, prepping sound equipment and building cool new websites where you can make your own wanted posters and add to the list of indictments. We’re even working with allies to get a celebrity to swear you in as an online deputy so you can back up the posse in D.C.

But with just a few days left, we need an extra infusion of resources to pull off all these cool ideas. Can you chip in an extra $10 right now to support next week’s protest?


Last week we delivered your stories and condolences to Senate leaders.3 And we know that those messages, and the 1 million others we helped to send, made an impact. President Obama has restarted the health care debate with a bipartisan summit, and there’s a good chance we can get something done in Congress again.4

Which is exactly why these insurance CEOs are coming back to D.C. too. They know it was public outcry that brought reform back from the dead. And they’re betting that they can kill it again by using big money and huge numbers of lobbyists to tie everything in D.C. into a filibustered knot.

What they aren’t expecting is that we’re ready to take the fight right to their door. On March 9 we’ll take the stories you submitted — and more — and confront these CEOs with them. We’ll demand that they face the people they’ve hurt by raising premiums, denying care and stalling reform.

But we can’t do it without your help. Donate $10, $35 or $50 right now to make this event unforgettable for the insurance CEOs and the rest of Washington.
