- Now is the time for our elected officials in Washington to act and pass real reform that makes healthcare affordable.
- Another year of inaction is exactly what opponents of reform like Blue Cross want.
- With more than 6.6 million Californians without health insurance -- nearly 20% of the state -- and even more of us who see our premiums rising and our benefits falling, elected officials in Washington must act this year to pass healthcare reform.
- We elected our representatives to tackle tough issues like this, not to give up.
