IN THE NEWS: Obama Signs Healthcare Legislation into Law!!

It's taken more than 100 years, but we finally have substantial reform to our horrible healthcare system. While more still needs to be done, President Obama has gone a long way in helping Americans get the coverage we all need. No adult or child should be without health insurance. This is America. We can't brag about our liberty and our greatness, while millions of Americans can't go to the doctor and millions of Americans can't be insured (or only receive limited healthcare coverage) due to pre-existing conditions.

The new healthcare law will ensure that 95% of all Americans will have health insurance! This is landmark and fulfills one of the promises Obama made to all Americans, when he began his campaign for the presidency.

This news story is partially a work-related story because the legislation will impact the bargaining power that businesses, especially small businesses, will have in finding more affordable healthcare coverage for workers. This might impact you.

Even if you are unemployed, the legislation will help you get coverage. Many elements of the law will roll out this year.

Of course, the GOP is still lying about what is in the healthcare package because they see it as a way to pick up seats in the mid-term Congressional elections. This is why we must all turn out to ensure that Democrats keep enough control in Congress for Obama to continue to make as many changes as possible.

This is a great day for all of us--especially the uninsured!!!
