Today was a historic moment for the citizens of the United States. Our President, Barak Obama, signed the Health Insurance Reform Bill into law. This will make insurance affordable for millions of uninsured citizens. This has been a long time coming and a desperately needed one. This legislation has many items that will be a boost to the lives of Americans starting this year. Especially for our children. This is a progressive bill with preventive measures. This is finally a start to better health for this country, both physically and mentally.
Once again we are part of the Democratic history of passing legislation that will help people and deter abuses by those whose bottom line is profit only. The Democrats can now add this to their list of accomplishments along with Medicare, Social Security and Civil Rights. This governing body of Democrats have secured those rights, not privilege, to ensure that we have access to good health in order to have "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
