    Here's my bottom line: No citizen — rich or poor, young or old — should be denied access to affordable health care.  Period. And no business should be be pushed to the brink of bankruptcy simply because it cares for its employees.

    You're a citizen, too, Congressman, and I think nobody would begrudge you taking the opportunity you do have to get decent affordable health care coverage.  I understand and appreciate the meaning of your act;  I also hope you stay well.

    A short note on the topic: I see no reason that making private insurance affordable should be the default position.  Why not make health care itself affordable?
