Faithful Reform in Health Care Call Senate. Prayer Vigil for Lieberman 11/24

Join Faithful in Health Reform and contact your Senators today and Saturday.  Use toll-free number 1-888-797-8717 or call local offices, or send an email.

The vote to proceed to debate, a critical first step in moving the Senate health care bill forward, will likely happen Saturday evening.  This motion to commit the bill to the floor for debate requires 60 votes. Senators in both parties, plus independents, are threatening to vote no, thus blocking debate on the bill itself.

People of faith are urged to make their voices heard — even though this is just a procedural vote, not a vote on the bill. We must overcome this hurdle to open the doors to honest and civil debate, and to provide the opportunity for us to communicate further with our Senators about the values we want reflected in health care reform.

Please make 2 CALLS NOW using the toll-free number provided for people of faith: 1-888-797-8717. Urge your Senators to vote YES on the motion to proceed and move the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” to the floor.

Please feel free to circulate this number broadly among your faith community. This number is provided by the United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society in collaboration with Faithful Reform in Health Care.


Hartford Interfaith Prayer Vigil: On Tuesday, November 24th, The Interfaith Fellowship for Universal Health Care will host a prayer vigil in front of Senator Lieberman’s Hartford Office.  Please join people from across Connecticut representing all walks of life and all faith traditions. Remind Senator Lieberman that we are united in our call For quality, affordable health care we can count on!  For more information and RSVP, please contact HealthCare4Every1 at or call: 203.639-0550.

  1. It is no accident that one Senator can be an obstructionist. He, and the filibuster for that matter, remind us that the governmental sovereignty allowed the state governments is what is really represented in the US Senate (unlike in the US House of Reps). As frustrating as it is, there is a trade off in wiping this out in favor of remaking the US Senate on the basis of the principles of the US House…trade offs given the scale of the US. and what the US is. For this argument, pls see
