Forty-seven million Americans are uninsured – “that’s a lie”, “faulty accounting.” Okay. Let’s say it’s only half of that…it’s too damn many!

How long are we going to let politics rule the day?!? No matter your party affiliation, whether or not you like Obama’s healthcare plan or if you think this issue doesn’t impact your life… healthcare reform must happen in order to save this country, rebuilding both our economy and families. Share your view on healthcare reform.

This isn’t about me. I have great health insurance… and so does every member of Congress.

Do you know someone who does not have health insurance? How many of us have held our breath during open enrollment when we learn how much our insurance premium will increase? I know my answer is yes to both.

This is the United States of America. You can work everyday and not have enough money to go to the doctor, let alone your kids. The majority of uninsured and underinsured people are working families. People and children DIE in this country because they don’t have health insurance.

If this is not THE “kitchen table” issue, I don’t know what is…
