We just ran the numbers, Diane:

Diane --

FACT: About 10.3 million fewer American adults are uninsured today than in 2013.

A lot of that has to do with Obamacare, and you deserve some major credit.

But we're not done yet. In three days, the health insurance marketplace opens again, and -- surprise, surprise! -- the other side thinks this is their chance to finally take the wind out of our sails.

Well, we have big plans, too. OFA is going all in for health care reform -- that's what Friday's budget deadline is all about.

We just ran the numbers, and we still need 5 donations from Montross to hit our goal.

Chip in $5 or more today. Every donation made before Friday night will be matched -- dollar for dollar.

I've heard from some folks who think the fight for health care reform is over. That's just not true, and you don't have to look very far to see the evidence.

Conservatives have been filing lawsuits targeting the financial assistance that is an integral part of the health care law -- because if that help is taken away, millions of people would be priced out of their newly acquired health care plans. It's a despicable strategy.

And some members of Congress continue to push misinformation about the law. Just a few weeks ago, Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin said that according to people he talked to in his state, premiums had gone up "around 30 percent" on average, which just isn't even close to being true for Wisconsinites who bought insurance through the Affordable Care Act's federal exchange. The Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance found that the average premium increase is just 3 percent in 2015.

We're building a team of organizers to protect Obamacare, and make sure Americans know the truth. And in the next three months, OFA volunteers will play a critical role in helping uninsured folks get the coverage they need.

Help fund that important work -- chip in $5 or more and get your donation matched today:
