(via citybeat.com) – A major effort is underway today to urge Congressman Steve Chabot (R-Westwood) to buck his GOP colleagues and vote against repealing the health-care reform law.

A national group, Catholics United, is placing about 6,000 telephone calls to Catholics who live in Ohio’s 1st Congressional District, that contains a recorded message asking them to have Chabot vote “no” on repealing health-care reform. The GOP leadership is expected to bring up the repeal bill, H.R. 2, on Wednesday for a vote by the U.S. House of Representatives.

After listening to the message, which tells voters of the health-care reform law’s important protections for children and the elderly, listeners can then choose to be connected directly to Chabot’s office.

There will be a rally today at noon at fountain square, led by The Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center in Over-the-Rhine. People directly affected by the new law will share their tales of how they’ve been helped since some of the law’s provisions have taken effect.
