There is no piecemeal approach to reform -- we cannot eliminate denial of care because of pre-existing conditions unless we mandate coverage for everybody. We can't impose mandates unless we subsidize coverage. We cannot subsidize coverage without taxing those who can afford to pay. Mandating coverage and taxing low and middle income families is a cruel joke on us and health insurance companies' dream. Insurance companies will win and we will lose.
Our Connecticut delegation (except for Lieberman) has done great work so far on health care reform. We cannot allow President Obama, Majority Leader Reid & Speaker Pelosi to cave in because it's hard. John Larson has risen to Rahm Emanuel's leadership position within the Democratic caucus. We need to send a message to Obama, Reid & Pelosi to stand up for us and stand up to the health industry!
