POTUS Stumps for Patrick

Over 10,000 enthusiasts like this CSfC'er came out on Saturday to rally for Governor Deval Patrick, and to see special guest Barack Obama. Refrains from Sen. John Kerry to singer James Taylor of "17 days" made it clear that November 2nd is almost here - we need to act now! Eastern Massachusetts has the weight to ensure that Deval Patrick wins on Nov. 2nd -- it's those who plan to stay home on Nov. 2nd who need to hear from us. So let's Get Out the Vote!!
President Obama stoked the crowd with his analogy of inheriting a car in a ditch. "John Kerry, Ed Markey, Deval Patrick, we put on our boots and pushed and shoved that car while the Republicans looked down at us, fanning themselves and sipping Slurpees, not willing to lift a hand to help," he said, to shouts of "That's right!" "Once we finally got the car onto to firm solid ground," he went on, "they say, 'great job.. can we have the keys back now?' No way! They can come along for the ride, but they gotta sit in the back this time! Everybody knows, if you want a car to go forward you put the car into D for Drive. If you want to go backwards to where you just came from, you put it into R for Reverse!"

Yup - put me down for D on Nov. 2nd.

Bus from Boston for Health Reform Protest - March 9

Every day that we allow the insurance companies to obstruct health care reform, people are losing their insurance, their financial security, and even their lives. On Tuesday, March 9, we are going to Washington DC to put a stop to the insurance companies' continued efforts to kill health care reform - and we need you to join us.

Health Care for America Now and SEIU are organizing a free bus that will leave from downtown Boston at 11pm on Monday March 8 to take activists down to a protest march in Washington. You can join us! Email for event details or look it up on facebook (event title:From Boston to DC: Get on the Bus for Health Care Reform).

On March 9, the health insurance lobby will hold their annual conference. We'll be joining thousands of other health care activists from around the country to take our message to the streets in protest! We'll be there to shut down their event and put the insurance companies and every corporate enemy of change on notice: We're tired of the gridlock in Congress and we won't allow the corporate lobbyists to keep bullying Congress into inaction - on health care and all of our issues.

Our dramatic action will send a clear message to Congress: Listen to everyday Americans, not the insurance lobbyists and pass reform that works for us, now. We've had enough of insurance companies' denied claims, inflated profits, and soaring premiums. We can't wait any longer. We need reform now.


Cambridge-Somerville for Change is an all-volunteer community group dedicated to harnessing the grassroots energy and spirit of change inspired by the Obama campaign. Our organizing work includes electoral and issue-based campaigns at the local, state, and national level. Our members have chosen to work on promoting economic fairness, comprehensive health care reform, creating policies that conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, provide for fair and adequate access to public transportation, and promoting in-state tuition for immigrant youth.

This is an organization built by and for you, the community, and we look forward to your participation and feedback. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions about getting involved, please email
