Health-Care Reform,what side are Politicians on?


We the People …
would like to thank all those Senators up on the Hill  who voted to get us one step closer to Health Care Reform/Insurance Reform, the fight to get affordable quality and accessible health care for all is a challenge but worth all the rhetoric currently going on.

cost containment is still an issue but this is one voter who is optimistic that change is coming, slow but it will come. It is time to bring our country into the 21st century;  that means changing the way things are done on the Hill, Wall Street and in our own houses.

This list might change…  come back, keep track

Lieberman stated he will filibust,says he is not alone.

Sen.(R)Susan Collins is more open to a HealthCare over haul
