  •  Yes! And I really do celebrate it. (8+ / 0-)

    But I have a confession to make.

    I have read comments by kossacks who still can't afford health insurance. I feel very badly for them. I sometimes don't want to make a celebratory comment because I don't want to make them feel more left behind.

    We all knew it would help many, but we still wouldn't have universal health care.

    I am 100 percent committed to building on this until there are no more horror stories in America.

    •  I agree. THere's still going to be hardship (2+ / 0-)

      because of medical expenses, treatments put off, etc.    But the ground gained is incredibly important and will save many lives, and add greatly to the quality of life for others.

      There have been some good posts this week, with people really celebrating what's been won.  That feels important to me.  Ned Sparks did a really good post, quoting a historian ranking Obama with FDR and Lyndon Johnson as one of the group who've shaped our safety net and shifted the direction of the country..  It was a hard, hard fight, and we didn't get all we wanted or all the country needs, but it was a hugely important win.  And as Joedemocrat says, we can build on it.

      I don't have time to read much tonight, but I just wanted to stop by and say Cheers, we won, and the bastardly Republicans can bitch and moan all the want, but they can't take this away.

      Wishing you all a good weekend, and myself a lot of sleep. :)
