    10. Karl Rove's, the Koch brothers', and other conservative groups’ $1 billion in outside money was no match for your grassroots organizing.

    8. The Supreme Court affirmed what we've known all along: Obamacare is constitutional.

    7. Four states made history by supporting marriage equality at the ballot box.

    6. Back from the brink of collapse, General Motors is posting record profits and investing billions in the U.S., thanks to a President who wouldn’t let Detroit go bankrupt.

    Friend,

    I'm about to go speak to the crowd here in Chicago, but I wanted to thank you first.

    I want you to know that this wasn't fate, and it wasn't an accident. You made this happen.

    You organized yourselves block by block. You took ownership of this campaign five and ten dollars at a time. And when it wasn't easy, you pressed forward.

    I will spend the rest of my presidency honoring your support and doing what I can to finish what we started.

    But I want you to take real pride, as I do, in how we got the chance in the first place.

    Today is the clearest proof yet that against the odds, ordinary Americans can overcome powerful interests.

    There's a lot more work to do.

    But for right now: Thank you.

    Barack

For me, and for so many others, Obamacare is the difference between life and death, wellness and illness, solvency and bankruptcy. That is why I am asking you to consider your vote tomorrow. This is what is at stake in this election.
