BREAKING NEWS: House Passes Historic Health Insurance Reform!

By SOP newswire2

Thanks to you and The SOP, I write to celebrate an historic moment for our country.

Hours ago, the House of Representatives passed the Affordable Health Care for America Act, which includes a strong public option, and will finally end the broken status quo of health insurance for the American people.

It is all the more fitting that we passed this legislation on the third anniversary of Democrats winning our Majority in the House of Representatives - November 7, 2006. Grassroots Democrats like you stood with us then to make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House and because you`ve stood with us every day since, today we passed legislation to finally make health insurance affordable for the middle class.

Read more about the Affordable Health Care for America Act, which you helped to pass through the House of Representatives earlier today.

There is still a lot of work ahead to make sure this legislation gets to President Obama`s desk for his signature. We`ll need grassroots Democrats like you to help us finish the job.

For now, I just wanted to say thank you for helping to make this historic day possible.

Sincerely,

Chris Van Hollen
Rep. Chris Van Hollen
DCCC Chairman
