At the debate, Mitt Romney looked the American public in the eye and said: "I do have a plan that deals with people with pre-existing conditions. That's part of my health care plan."

His campaign quietly admitted afterwards that, no, it is not, in fact, a part of his health care plan.

As a breast cancer survivor and someone living with a pre-existing condition, this statement was more personally offensive than any of his repeated promises to repeal Obamacare. This kind of say-anything dishonesty is typical from Mitt Romney and the Republicans.

You can do something. Please give $X or more today to help Democrats set the record straight about Romney and his allies. Voters need to know.

When the other side makes empty, dishonest promises like this one, it's not only the worst kind of politics, it's toying with real people's lives.

As a cancer survivor, I know just how much we used to be at the mercy of insurance providers. Obamacare protects us from unfair practices like lifetime caps on your coverage, denial of coverage because of pre-existing conditions, and being dropped from your policy exactly when you need it most. Mitt Romney will take that all away but when he's asked point-blank about it, he won't admit it.

We deserve better. But we need to work harder than ever for it.

Time to suit up and fight back. Please donate $X or more today let's stand together and keep Mitt Romney and Republicans in Congress away from our health care:

The Democratic Party -----------------------

On Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden will debate Rep. Paul Ryan -- the man responsible for a budget that would turn Medicare into a voucher program, cut Medicaid, and raise taxes on the middle class while giving $X trillion in tax cuts skewed to millionaires and billionaires.

We'll see a clear choice up on that stage. President Obama, Vice President Biden, and Democratic candidates across the country are fighting to give everyone the health care they need, strengthen the middle class, and create jobs.

Exactly four weeks from today, we'll know which way this country will go -- forward or back.

I won't lie to you: We've got quite a fight ahead of us in the next 28 days. Every donation counts.

Everything we've been building for is here. Our field teams are firing on all cylinders and our volunteers are turning out in force. People are already voting in some states. Critical races are coming down to the wire. And it's all over in four weeks. In other words, we need to work our hearts out. But sometimes I have to make tough budget decisions just because we don't have the resources to say "yes." Every single dollar right now is critical -- your support means we can do more, and those decisions are being made right now. Please donate $X or more today so we can finish this strong:

[url] We just opened our 100th office in both Ohio and Florida, and they're already running at peak capacity. Last week, volunteers and organizers registered 10,000 voters in Florida -- in a single day. It's the worst feeling to have to tell such amazing, hardworking people, "Sorry, that's a good plan, but we just can't afford it." These decisions are in your hands. These last four weeks, we need to hire those extra organizers and print those additional signs. Chip in $X or more today, and you'll go a long way to making that possible:
