In honor of President Obama's 52nd birthday today, Organizing for Action volunteers across the country are coming together to celebrate in a unique way: spreading the truth about Obamacare. What better way to celebrate the President's birthday than by getting together and talking about how we can protect one of our proudest accomplishments?
Americans deserves health care that fits their budget and is there when they need it. Obamacare helps them achieve that—and today, we're making sure people know what it has to offer.
Obamacare fights for better coverage at lower costs to the patient, and ensures patients can receive preventive care services, like vaccinations, mammograms, cancer screenings, annual checkups, blood pressure and cholesterol tests at no cost. More than 70 million Americans have already received free preventive care.
That's just one example of how Obamacare is working, and today, OFA volunteers are helping spread the word about all the benefits of Obamacare by sharing information and getting the facts out there in their local neighborhoods.
Obamacare has done so much good, yet a lot of Americans are unaware of its benefits. Even worse, opponents are spending millions of dollars trying to convince Americans that Obamacare isn't working, and they don't care if they have to lie or mislead to do it. Those opponents might have plenty of money—but we have the facts on our side. It's up to us to make sure our friends and neighbors know the truth.
Today's efforts are just the start of a national, month-long series of grassroots events called Action August . You can still be involved in this fight.
