Watched Obama speech tonight. I thought it covered all the issues and was very moving. I was in tears when he talked about Ted Kennedy and the moral imperative behind this legislation. I'm lucky I have good insurance, but what if I didn't? Is it moral to let people fall through the cracks of this creaky system? To go bankrupt and/or die? Is that good for our society, our families? Other wealthy countries don't treat their citizens this way. It's immoral.
One more full day here and I'm going home. Glad I came but am looking forward to returning home to the cats. No emails or calls from my neighbor who's tending the cats, so I trust they're OK.
