No matter what else you do in office, no matter how history remembers you, I will always be grateful to you for initiating the health care reform that allows me to purchase affordable insurance for my three and a half year old daughter.
She has asthma, you see. And the insurance through my job costs me more than $500 a month. Without your reform, I could never have taken her off that insurance because asthma is a pre-existing condition they wouldn't accept. As of today, and because of you, I can submit her application and they will cover her.
I cannot express how thankful I am--so thankful that I'm nearly crying as I type this.
Thank you a thousand times over.
