          National Actions:  
             Health:
Support the End Surprise Billing Act!
Having health insurance and using in-network providers should be enough to keep you from getting unexpected medical bills. Unfortunately, a loophole in the law lets hospitals stick patients with ridiculous charges.
Watch this chilling video, then act!
We take antibiotics for granted. Strep throat, sinus infection, UTI a quick visit to the doctor, a prescription, and you're feeling better.

Safe cures, not drug company giveaways!
The so-called 'medical innovation' bill passed by the House would weaken safety testing, slow the approval of low cost generics, and reduce reporting of drug company giveaways to doctors. We don't have to trade safety for innovation! Act Now!

             Money:
Don't let Wall Street muzzle our watchdog
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has stood up to Wall Street's abuses like no one else. In just four years they have returned more than $11 billion to consumers who suffered financial harm at the hands of the banks.
Insurance Commissioners: fix auto insurance!
Behind the ads promising great rates is a pricing system based largely on socioeconomic factors like credit history, gender, whether you use department-store or bank credit cards, and even your choice of TV services. Demand pricing based on how we drive!
Students deserve the same fair deal!
Congress recently stopped credit card companies from using dirty tricks to keep millions of Americans from paying off their card debt. But college students? Not so much.

             Food:
GMO DARK Act cloture vote
Monsanto's GMO bill failed when 49 Senators blocked it with a "No" vote on cloture.
Thank your Senators for blocking the DARK Act!
Monsanto's bill to terminate state GMO labeling laws and substitute a weak industry-backed voluntary program FAILED when 49 Senators voted "No!" Check out the vote and thank your lawmakers!
Tell your Senator to block Monsanto's latest attack!
Senators are writing their own GMO labeling bill right now. Monsanto and industrial food producers are in their ear, telling them you don't need to know about GMOs in your food.
Fix "natural" food labels!
If you thought "natural" meant no antibiotics or GMOs or pesticides, you are not alone. But it doesn't mean any of those things. It doesn't mean much at all. Tell the FDA to stop letting food companies dupe consumers.
End overuse of antibiotics in livestock!
Tell your lawmakers you want an end to antibiotic overuse on farm animals. It matters not only for the animals but for your family's health!

             Media & Telecommunications:
Support HANG UP Act to repeal robocalls to cell phones!
Buried in the massive budget compromise was a provision authorizing perhaps the one thing that no one -- no matter their party or philosophy -- wants: robocalls to cell phones. The HANG UP Act will repeal that before it takes effect: Support it now!
Telcos: We want the robocalls stopped!
Tell the phone companies to offer free robocall blocking options NOW! There are ways to give you relief. It's time to motivate them with a national campaign and 500,000 angry customers speaking as one!

             Other:
Congress: Direct Volkswagen to meet this test!
Volkswagen top brass are headed to Capitol Hill this week for hearings on Dieselgate. Tell your lawmaker to measure Volkswagen's response against these four accountability standards!
New VW CEO: Do the right thing. Meet this test.
Tell new Volkswagen CEO, Matthias Müller to measure proposed reforms at Volkswagen against these four accountability standards!

Success Stories:
Kim and EricKim Witczak and Eric Swan have met with Governor Pawlenty and Rep. Jim Ramstad of Minnesota, who became a joint co-sponsor of drug safety legislation in the House.

Dick Lambert
Dick Lambert of Roseville, MN contacted the Financial Privacy Now (FPN) campaign to further educate and encourage members in his community to become aware of issues outside Roseville. Aside from contacting a local AARP and legislators, Dick posted information on the Minnesota security freeze bill on the Roseville Citizens League webpage to get out the word and generate more support on the bill. His web and political savviness helped to invigorate what started off as a bill with limited protections to one of the best security freeze laws in the nation!
