Summary of material prepared for Organizing for America Maryland

I am working as a volunteer for Organizing for America Maryland/Montgomery County.  OFA/MoCo has created a number of strategy teams including a health reform team.  As part of the team's planning, I have put together the following list of materials, much of it comes from earlier postings to this blog. 

1) here is some key material from herndon alliance

look over the entire site.  I will see what I can do to get some training from them

here is perhaps the best summary of sources

my best source is time magazine article, also kaiser, consumer reports, and health reform.gov (that site ahs a great deal of useful material, but it maybe too much for our purpose)
