The Lion roars, his most powerful yet

July 18, 2009

So much he has done to help out the working and middle classes. He continues to do so, even when he is going through so much. He doesn’t have to, you know. He could just pack it all in and call it a day, but the warrior carries on, and for that, we are grateful.581px-ted_kennedy_official_photo_portrait

Senator Ted Kennedy, speaking out in a way that no one else can. The Cause of My Life

  • Cover the uninsured
  • Require all citizens have insurance & provide subsidies to those who can’t afford it
  • make it illegal to deny insurance to those with preexisting conditions
  • federal government would negotiate rates—in keeping with local economic conditions—for a plan that would be offered alongside private insurance options
  • rewards doctors for quality and positive outcomes (instead of tons of unnecessary tests
  • help disabled Americans who want to live in their homes instead of a nursing home; it’s less costly!
  • make certain that people can keep the coverage they already have
  • prevent disease and not just cure it; modernize a system that doesn’t always provide the basics
  • the change will be paid for—fairly, responsibly, and without adding to the federal deficit; no tax increases on anyone making less than $250,000 a year

“And I am resolved to see to it this year that we create a system to ensure that someday, when there is a cure for the disease I now have, no American who needs it will be denied it.”

Give ’em hell, Teddy and let’s get this pushed through. Over 47 million Americans are waiting.
