Americans United for Health Care and Insurance Reform is our “Field of Dreams.” We have built it, they will come. The response since our Press Release issued this morning has been tremendous.

Kudo’s to SaraBeth and Kittykago for their excellent work on DailyKOS and all the Twitters and FaceBook enthusiasts and my committee of 5 who have steered me in the right direction and kept me on the road when I was veering in the wrong direction.
Keep the pressure up. Get the Press Release to all your local newspapers and media contacts.
Thank you, for all you have done and will continue to do for health care and insurance reform.
