The American people voted for change in 2008. And they continued voting for change in Massachusetts. And now they’re demanding change from Congress.

Hundreds of people across the country showed up at the home offices of Representatives and Senators this weekend to deliver this message: We’re still fighting, and you should to! The American people want health care reform and they want it done right – and Congress must deliver, or else!

In Philadelphia, over 200 people turned out with Congressman Chaka Fattah. Accompanied by the Rocky theme song, they ran to the top of the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum and made sure everyone heard loud and clear that we’re still fighting for health reform.

Check it out, the video is sure to put a smile on your face:

In Bristol, Pennsylvania, Representative Murphy was on hand to get the message:

In Erie, PA, Congresswoman Dahlkemper got the message:

In Arkansas, the message was delivered to Representatives Snyder and Berry:

In Illinois, supporters braved the freezing weather to deliver the message to Representative Bean:

Is Missouri, supporters got creative and impersonated the entire MO delegation:

And in Montana, Senator Max Baucus was getting the message, particularly from small business owners:

Photos and clips are still rolling in from around the country, so there’s more to come! And today, now that Representatives and Senators are back in DC, we’re launching a national call-in day to make sure they get the message.

Click here to call your Members of Congress and tell them to finish reform, finish it right – with a public option, more affordability credits, no taxes on the middle class, and insurance company accountability – and finish it now!
