May 4, 2012 (San Diego) – The California Insurance Commissioner, Dave Jones, is seeking public help to collect enough signatures to qualify a measure for the ballot that will stop excessive rate hikes by health insurers and HMOs.  The deadline for signature collection is Monday.

Read his letter:

Three days left!  

That is the amount of time we have - from now until Monday - to collect the 200,000 remaining signatures we need for the ballot measure to reject excessive health insurance and HMO rate hikes. 

Will you join me, Senator Dianne Feinstein and over 600,000 of your fellow Californians in signing the petition to demand that health insurance companies and HMOs justify their rates, and get permission before going forward with excessive rate hikes?

Every signature counts -- Download, sign and mail the petition today!   

Watch the video that the health insurance companies don't want you to see!  Health insurance rates continue to climb as health insurers and HMOs make record profits.    

If you have already signed, you can still help by:  

1) Mailing all signed petitions to the Consumer Watchdog Campaign (P.O. Box 5547, Santa Monica CA 90409-5547) no later than Monday, May 7.  Thank you for your efforts to collect signatures!     

2) Click here to "like" the ballot initiative Facebook page.  Share it on your wall for friends and family to see!   

3) Click here to follow the initiative on Twitter.  Re-tweet and ask your followers to sign and send in the petition too! 

4) Forward this email to friends and family.  Urge them to download, sign and mail in the petition! 

We are just 200,000 signatures away from giving California voters a chance to stop excessive and skyrocketing health insurance premiums.  

Please sign today and spread the word!
