I am very proud that our House of Representatives has acted strongly and decisively in support of a health care program that works for all Americans, rich or poor.
This is a vote of conscience that, as Americans, we care what happens to the people of our nation and we want a sensible cost-controlled system that is effective and available to everyone.
Members of the House listened to their constituents above the rhetoric and that is exactly why we elect them – to act and represent our voices and our needs.
No one should die or go bankrupt because of pre-existing conditions or a lack of health insurance.
Now it is up to the Senate to act as bravely as the House. It is time for you to show us that Congress, as a whole, listens and acts on behalf of the people of the United States who elect you to office.
Put away your partisan-ship and think about the millions of people who will have a better life and a better chance with this bill passing. Give them the chance we deserve.
(Special thanks to Jared Polis, my House Rep, … thank you for voting for this bill!)
