Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) now on the floor to give us a history lesson.

“injustice in health care is inhumane….” MLK, Jr.

[ Of all forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.
—┬áRev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.]

“Thank you to my father, MLK Jr., Speaker Pelosi, President Obama”

Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT)

Will we change the status quo that enriches health insurance companies?

We will change this today and we will all help pay!

Rep. Sam Farr (D-CA), letter from a constituent with spina bifida-“you will have to be on Medicaid all of your life-you have a pre-existing condition-you can’t afford a job!” Please pass this bill so this doesn’t happen to my kids.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), “This is not an unfunded mandate…I cannot tolerate 45,000 Americans dying each year due to lack of insurance”.

Rep. ??? “my dad told me not to let another American family lose their house due to medical bills”. I voted yes in November and yes again tonight.

Rep. Kagen (D-WI) What kind of nation are we and what kind of nation will we be if we don’t pass this bill?

Rep. Fattah: D, ‘Sunday has come-we will pass this bill”

Rep. Ryan again (R-WI) “We have offered constructive solutions at every step of the way and been ignored.” My mother in law is on Evastin for ovarian cancer and if she was British-she wouldn’t be allowed to take this drug.” (True?)
