Reflections on this Night

* Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is one awesome person to be able to get to this night. I continue to remind my daughters that Speaker Pelosi is a woman to be admired and respected for her work and leadership. We need more women like her in government.

The Republicans did everything they could to stop this legislation. They may have delayed it, but they could not stop it.

As the Speaker said tonight, being a woman will no longer be a pre-existing condition. Recently, a large employer in central Ohio had their health insurance cancelled because a majority of those they employ are women. Their previous insurance carrier refused to continue to cover the workers. Each of the employees had to seek their own health insurance.

* I've been watching the C-SPAN coverage of the debate on the Health Care bill. The Republicans are just so out of touch with life that they are completely unaware of what it is like to go through life without health care.

Recent activities by the Tea Party groups in Washington, DC, have really shown what their groups are all about---- racism, hatred, and homophobia. Why do the Republicans continue to support them?
