Dear Editor:

Recently, a bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives made history by passing strong health reform legislation – and on November 21st, the Senate continued that progress by voting to begin debate on its version of the bill.

After nearly a century of false starts, this is the farthest we've ever come to enacting real health insurance reform. These are historic accomplishments.Representatives who are working hard to pass reform deserve thanks for resisting tremendous pressure from the insurance industry lobbyists and standing up for their constituents.
