Pressure mounts for/against healthcare bill

Los Angeles Times, March 5, 2010

As President Obama pushes for a prompt vote on his health initiative, lobbyists and activist groups on both sides of the issue have launched grass-roots and high-dollar advertising campaigns on the roughly two dozen members of Congress who may be the final swing votes on the issue, the Los Angeles Times reports. For example, left-leaning MoveOn.org issued an e-mail plea to raise $200,000 "to fight back and pass healthcare reform." Meanwhile, AFL-CIO executives plan to attend a demonstration next week at a Washington, DC, meeting of health insurance executives.
