A historic vote that deserves support

On Nov. 7, a majority of the House of Representatives made history by passing HR3962, the Affordable Health Care for America Act.

After nearly a century of false starts, this was the first time a house of Congress has ever passed comprehensive health insurance reform. This is a historic accomplishment.

Representatives who voted for this bill deserve thanks for resisting tremendous pressure from the insurance industry lobbyists and standing up for their constituents.

Those who did not vote for the bill have one last opportunity to reconsider and support reform in the upcoming final House vote - and they should do so.

A vote for this bill was a vote to provide secure and stable coverage for Americans with insurance, expand coverage for those who do not have insurance, lower costs for families and businesses, and begin to reduce the deficit.

In 2010, voters will remember whether or not their representatives supported true health insurance reform and consider that when they go to the polls.
