Today we remember a great man and his work. We read his sermons. We recall his sacrifices. We give back. In doing these things, we raise our gaze and renew the spirit in which we serve one another. Such is the calling of Martin Luther King Jr., Day. The work of democracy is never easy, especially when our divisions may seem insurmountable. But we must believe deeply, as Dr. King did, in our common humanity and citizenship. We must believe in our capacity to come together and transform ‘thin paper to thick action.’ On this day, let us all reflect on how we can do our part to serve and work toward a more perfect union.

Tim Schrag Mine went up 30%. You can't even budget for house or car loans because healthcare costs are so uncontrollable. This needs to go away. Government intervention and government mandates that raise healthcare costs need to go away as well.
Jack Sorensen In the last 2 weeks I've spoke with 2 cancer patients and a transplant patient that tell me the ACA saved their lives. What you are doing has them fearful for their survival!
Elana Rabinovitch In its November poll, the Kaiser Family Foundation found support for full repeal of Obamacare had declined to 26 percent overall — the lowest in two years. What's more, once you noted to repeal supporters that this could end coverage for preexisting ...

Jay Brande Of those who currently have signed up for Obamacare, I like to see the Analytics of their premiums and their deductibles. I think you're going to find everybody has catastrophic insurance and nobody can afford their deductible.
Vicky Short No defunding of Planned Parenthood. It is an important health care option for many men and women. Republicans have yet to make any feasible health care plan.
Amy Zimmerman Wood I know people who cannot afford the affordable health insurance provided under Obamacare even with the discount. Why force people to buy one thing? Why not give them choices? I thought that was more American. Get people who don't need it off ...
