Senator Kennedy's Widow Says Pass Health Care

Vickie Kennedy Asks that we Finish her late Husband's Work

My late husband, Ted Kennedy, was passionate about health-care reform. It was the cause of his life. He believed that health care for all our citizens was a fundamental right, not a privilege, and that this year the stars -- and competing interests -- were finally aligned to allow our nation to move forward with fundamental reform. He believed that health-care reform was essential to the financial stability of our nation's working families and of our economy as a whole.

Still, Ted knew that accomplishing reform would be difficult. If it were easy, he told me, it would have been done a long time ago. He predicted that as the Senate got closer to a vote, compromises would be necessary, coalitions would falter and many ardent supporters of reform would want to walk away. He hoped that they wouldn't do so. He knew from experience, he told me, that this kind of opportunity to enact health-care reform wouldn't arise again for a generation. (click link for more)



Yes, we need Kennedy to give us the shaft again, even when he is dead.

Remember, he was one of the prime sponsors of the HMO laws. When he was alive, all he did was complain and rail against it, but never made mention of the fact that he helped to put us in the situation we are in today.
