Health care reform. If you voted for it, stand by it.

Congress approved health care reform because our system has been broken for decades.  Millions needed and still need coverage.  It was a leadership move to make life better for all Americans. This new part of the law  that takes effect today will likely help up to 2 million young people. For more information, an LA Times article explains it.

Conservatives say they want to get rid of it. (Alert! Politics as usual.)  According to Think Progress Republicans’ ‘Pledge to America’ recommends repealing at least six Democratic health policies with Republican versions of the EXACT SAME thing! Yeah, ok. (sarcasm)

Sadly, Democratic policy makers are running away from health care reform. Some haven’t mentioned it or used it as a campaign accomplishment.  Too bad. Rep. Alan Grayson (FL-08) is not going out like that.  He’s boldly talking about health care – in his  own moderate district and is beating his opponent! Wow.  I dig that!

The same leadership that motivated policymakers to enact health care might just be the right for winning in Nov. Hey. If you voted for it, stand by it. Right?
