Pastors Urge Health Care Reform
As Senators head home for Independence Day Recess, local faith leaders from across the country will take to the airwaves with radio ads reminding them that the status quo on health care is “not who we are as a nation” and that “America can do better.” Drawing on the Scriptural call to act with a spirit of courage, love and action, the ads urge key Senators to support reform that makes quality coverage truly affordable for every American family.
Ads will air on Christian and mainstream radio in Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Nebraska, and North Carolina featuring local pastors from each state asking their Senators to support reform. This campaign is a follow-up to ads that ran over the Memorial Day recess and is sponsored by PICO National Network, Faith in Public Life, Faithful America, Sojourners, Gamaliel Foundation, and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good.

It's a vision first proclaimed by Isaiah: No more shall there be an infant that lives but a few days, or an old person who does not live out a lifetime.
