    I hope Rep. Miller’s speech will include Mental Health Care Reform, and Pharmaceutical Industry Reform.

    The Senate seems to have thrown overboard the working poor – those who work but have no health care from thier employers (such as myself). Health insurance for the working poor – a key componenet of the House’s bill – is missing from the stalled Senate Bill. The House – thanks to courageous political leaders like our Congressman George Miller – has been looking out for the working poor, but the Senate has turned thier back on them. People that are working full time at low wages, should get a chance to have affordable health care! Health care shouldn’t only go to the rich.
