thank you

To every Congressperson who voted to pass the Senate’s health-care reform bill, and then the House’s reconciliation bill, a heartfelt letter of appreciation.

You’ve stood by your convictions, against the year-long onslaught of partisan attacks. Against the year-long onslaught of lies perpetrated by moneyed interests. Against the year-long onslaught of fierce anger from seething  tea-partiers; some out of misinformation, some out of fear, some out of racism. 

Special thanks to Bart Stupak, the staunchest anti-abortion democrat on the Hill, who’s been called a baby-killer for forcing the President to sign an Executive Order insuring protections for the unborn. To Dennis Kucinich, for not allowing the good become the enemy of the perfect. To Nancy Pelosi, for her tireless leadership. And to my Representative, “blue dog” Patrick Murphy of Pennsylvania, for fulfilling his promise to me, and the rest of his constituents. 

And of course, to President Obama, who accomplished what many others tried and failed to do: Reform America’s broken health-care system.

“Tonight, we answered the call of history as so many generations of Americans have before us. When faced with crisis, we did not shrink from our challenge — we overcame it. We did not avoid our responsibility — we embraced it. We did not fear our future — we shaped it.” – Barack Obama, March 21, 2010

    Great post. I agree wholeheartedly.
    Having grown up in the 1960’s, I imagined the days of angry white people shouting (things like nigger and fag) was over. I guess not. Never underestimate the power of the media to fan the flames of bigotry!
