Thousands of union workers and healthcare activists gathered at the Upper Senate Park in DC today to rally for true, universal health care. As the fight gears up on capitol hill, a crowd that dwarfs the media-hyped teabaggers, made their voices heard loud and clear.
We at Sum of Change have one thing to say about this:
We have control. Do not falter in this moment, a moment of urgency. Remember lessons of old. The last time the Democratic Party caved on health care, we lost for a decade straight. This is our holy grail, my generations social security. This issue displays, elegantly, the change in priorities that our nation voted for so overwhelmingly in 2008. This can be done and do not let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
