“I will not walk away from these Americans and neither should the people in this chamber. Don’t walk away. Not now. Finish the job for the American people. Let’s get it done.? – President Obama on Americans? demand for a just and affordable health care system
Tonight, President Obama renewed the drive for comprehensive health care reform, calling for a reexamination of the plan on the table but opening the door for other options.
The cancer community doesn?t care about the method, whether it?s piece by piece or in an omnibus bill. What we care about is change that creates affordable care and an end to unethical practices by insurers that wreak havoc on our lives.
The President made clear that he?s heard our call for reform and will continue to make a just, affordable system a priority.
