Call Congressman John Kline

Your help is today:
Yesterday, David Wellstone gave passionate testimony at a hearing for the Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act, a bipartisan bill that would end the discrimination against people with mental illness and addiction and ensure that mental health care costs are covered equally by insurance companies, just like other medical costs.

Your Congressman John Kline was at the hearing and is a key member of the committee that will decide if we will finally achieve Senator Paul Wellstone's passionately held priority for fairness for people with mental illness. David said he had a good exchange with him, and believes that now he needs to hear that his constituents support mental health parity so we can overpower the big insurance lobby.

Can you make a quick phone call to Congressman Kline and tell him that you support the Wellstone bill?

The message is simple: " I am calling to urge you to support the Paul Wellstone Mental Health and Addiction Equity Act (HR 1424). This is a bipartisan bill that is co-sponsored by a majority of House members. It is common sense legislation that ends discrimination against people suffering from mental illness and addiction. The Wellstone bill is fair, just, and long overdue. Please support this strong bill and urge your colleagues to finally pass it out of the House this year."

Congressman Kline can be reached at 202-225-2271 and/or at his Burnsville office at 952-808-1213. Please call now!

Let us know if you made the call by emailing

Thanks,Wellstone Action
