Women deserve equal pay for equal work

Organizing for Action
Diane --

Yesterday, the Senate voted on the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill that would help close the pay gap between women and men.

The Senate voted along party lines and the bill failed to reach the 60 votes needed for passage. It appears that some members don't think addressing this issue is necessary. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell even referred to it as a "bizarre obsession."

On average, women in America currently make just 77 cents for every dollar that men earn -- if you think that's a real problem, you need to do something about it today.

We're asking Congress to take the gender pay gap seriously -- add your name to support equal pay for equal work.

The Paycheck Fairness Act would make it easier for women to take action if they aren't being paid fairly, strengthen equal pay laws, and help make pay discrimination a thing of the past.

But this isn't just a women's issue -- this affects families across the country. Women are breadwinners in 40 percent of households with children in America.

President Obama has taken steps to reduce pay discrimination against women. In fact, just this week, he issued two executive orders to ban federal contractors from punishing employees for discussing their salaries, and require these contractors to submit data on compensation paid to their employees, including gender and race.

The President has done his part, but too many members of Congress have failed to take this issue seriously.

If that makes you mad, that's because it should -- do something about it. Add your name to stand with women for equal pay:

Add your name to the permanent record:

Organizing for Action
Diane --

It took 100 years.

Presidents from Teddy Roosevelt to Harry Truman, from Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton all fought to reform our health care system.

Under President Obama, we got it done. That's thanks to the millions of Americans who fought for it, some over the course of decades.

We're creating a permanent record of every single person who helped make health care reform happen -- today, make sure your name is on it.

Last week, we found out that more than 7 million Americans signed up for insurance through the marketplace. Millions more have coverage through Medicaid expansion, and more than 3 million young adults are covered because they can stay on their parents' plans.

That's millions of people who won't have to lose sleep wondering if an unexpected accident will leave them bankrupt. That's millions of folks who can go see a doctor and get a much needed checkup without worrying about how much it'll set them back.

For decades, affordable health care was out of reach for millions in this country. Not anymore.

That's why we all fought for reform in the first place.

Health care reform is going to live in the history books forever -- it's definitely something I'll be sharing with my grandkids.

Add your name to the record of the people who got it done:

http://my.barackobama.com/You-Made-History

Thank you,

Lindsay

Your name belongs in the permanent record

Organizing for Action
Diane --

We've all worked hard to make health care reform a success -- many have fought for decades.

It's something I'll tell my grandkids about.

OFA is putting together the permanent record of the people who made health care reform happen -- everyone from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama and, yes, even Richard Nixon.

Your name belongs on this list -- add it right now.

It will be permanently installed at OFA headquarters in Chicago to be a constant reminder that lasting change is possible when we come together and organize.

Think about how long Americans have fought for this. In 1912, Teddy Roosevelt was the first president to advocate for health care for all Americans. When we passed the Affordable Care Act, more than 45 million Americans were uninsured.

Now, millions of young adults can stay on their parents' plan until 26, millions more are covered through the expansion of Medicaid, and as we heard this week, more than 7 million Americans signed up for private coverage through the marketplace. And, year after year, it's only going to get better.

That's why we fought for this law.

It was a long road to get here. We want to take a minute to recognize everyone who helped make history. That includes you, Diane.

Add your name to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the people who made health care reform happen:

I need your help, Diane



Diane, this one's easy:

Chances are, you know someone who needs to get covered -- maybe it's a family member, a friend, a coworker, or a neighbor.

Forward this email to them today. Tell them it's the last call to sign up on the health insurance marketplace for 2014, and this is where to get started:

http://www.HealthCare.gov

For anyone who wants the peace of mind of having health care, or who wants to take advantage of the financial assistance available to millions of uninsured Americans, there's no time to wait. The deadline is March 31st.

I'm counting on people like you, and groups like OFA, to spread the word.

Pass along the link above, and help someone you know get covered. Just hearing it from you will mean a lot. And it means a lot to me to know there are folks like you out there doing your part.

Thank you,

Barack Obama
