For nearly all of my adult life (and believe me, that's a long, long time!), I have hoped for a health care system that is worthy of America and serves all of our people well. I have seen what happens to folks who don't have health care insurance.
In spite of Republicans who reflexively vote "NO!" on anything that could possibly be viewed as a Democratic success (even when the majority of Americans favor it), we got the first real run at real health care that is comprehensive and just.
Republicans are clear that if they control the legislature, one of their first crusades will be to take down the health care program just because....well, because they can.
I am voting to keep health care momentum going, and to cement the gains we've finally, finally made.
How about you?
