Health care costs have skyrocketed and people everywhere are worried that they are just one illness away from financial ruin. Our country is facing a health care crisis — and we need our Congressional leaders to meet that challenge head on. I am asking Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer to do his part to make health care reform in this country a reality.
I'm glad that efforts like Divided We Fail are urging Congress to focus on affordable, quality health care and lifetime economic security for all Americans. In these tough economic times, our broken health care and financial systems are hurting too many families and businesses. We need solutions now.
As voters, we must take a stand and demand action from our politicians. I know Divided We Fail is bringing that message to Washington, D.C., this week — delivering more than 1 million pledge cards to Congress. Now is not the time for partisan bickering — it is time to work together and find solutions to our nation's health care crisis, and I hope that Congressman Luetkemeyer does his part in our nation's capital.
