DNC Chair Gets 'Personal' for Campaign Cash

In an email with the subject title "This is personal," Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz relays her own story to help raise funds for her party. "In 2007, I heard the words no woman wants to hear: 'You have breast cancer,'" the email begins.

The Supreme Court decision to uphold Obamacare is a big deal for millions of Americans like me.

But the fight to protect it is far from over.

If elected, Mitt Romney has vowed to repeal it on Day One, and I believe him.

This fight is personal to me. I want to do everything I can to protect health care for every American. And I need your help.

Donate $3 or more today to make sure Romney and Republicans can't take away our health care.

We have an important fundraising deadline tomorrow at midnight, and the Republican Party will be judging our ability to keep fighting by how much we raise before that deadline.

When Mitt Romney talks about getting rid of Obamacare, let's take a second to talk about what that would really mean:

It means children with pre-existing conditions would once again be denied coverage, some women would lose access to critical preventive care, and millions of seniors would lose the benefits that help pay for life-saving medicine.

This law is far too important to too many Americans for Republicans to throw it out.

Give Democrats the resources we need to win and protect this historic achievement -- and the lives of millions of Americans. Donate $3 or more today:
