Calling Tips

Here are some tips:

  • Be polite, respectful and clear.
  • Introduce yourself to whoever answers the phone and let them know you are a constituent – mention what city you live in.
  • Tell them you are calling to say that you strongly support President Obama’s three principles for health care reform in 2009. Congress must pass a plan that reduces costs, guarantees choice – including the choice of a robust public insurance option – and ensures quality care for every American.
  • Ask if your member of Congress also supports these three principles.

Example Script for Your Calls

Hello, my name is __________ and I'm a constituent calling from __________ (city or town).

I'm calling today because I wanted to let you know that I strongly support President Obama's 3 principles for real health care reform. Congress must pass a plan that reduces health care costs, ensures quality care for every American, and guarantees choice – including a robust public insurance option.

Also, I think it's critical to get this done in 2009; it's just too urgent to wait any longer.

Does (Rep./Sen.) _________ support these 3 principles?

Thank you!
