Dear Editor:

Passing health reform is a historic victory for all Americans – for families, seniors, young people, workers, and small businesses alike. All Americans will now have the security of knowing that they don't risk losing the American dream if they get sick or are in an accident.

Passing this legislation isn't just a victory for the American people, it's a victory over special interests who have fought for decades to keep families and businesses from controlling their own health care.

Americans can now be secure in knowing that if they become unemployed, change jobs, or start a new business, the new health insurance market will keep costs down and provide them with quality, affordable options.

And it will improve the country's fiscal health – cutting over 1 trillion dollars from the federal deficit over the next two decades.
