Thank you, truly

President Obama sent an email to supporters to say thank you for the role you played in making health care reform a success. Read the President's message:

I had to take a moment to say thank you.

Truly, you made history.

A long line of organizers fought for nearly 100 years to make health care reform a reality, and now we're seeing the results. Millions of Americans have health insurance today, thanks to reform—some for the first time in their lives.

The work you did is how real, lasting change gets made, and I hope it will be remembered for years to come.

Make sure you're included in OFA's permanent record of the people who made health care reform happen.

Anyone who was part of this decades-long fight will tell you it was never easy, but it was always the right thing to do. Teddy Roosevelt knew it. Harry Truman knew it. Teddy Kennedy sure knew it.

No matter how hard it got, the results we're seeing today make it all worthwhile. Millions of Americans now have coverage, and even more have better health care, thanks to the work you did.

Take a moment to let that sink in.

It's proof that when people come together and fight for what they believe in, real, lasting change is possible.

What you achieved—and how you did it—is something that should be documented for future generations. OFA will install a permanent record of people who fought for health care at its headquarters in Chicago.

Make sure your name is added, alongside mine:

I can't thank you enough,

Barack Obama

Make sure your name is on the permanent record.
