Today's Supreme Court ruling upholding health care reform means insurance companies can no longer cancel your policy if you get sick. It means you won't be denied care or charged more due to a pre-existing condition. And it means your children can stay on the family's policy until they're 26.
Those are just a few of the protections in the health care law the Court ruled to be constitutional.
And who would oppose any of this?
Turns out the right-wing extremists do. Immediately after the ruling, they took to the airwaves and Internet to attack the decision -- and to blast anyone, including me, who dared disagree with them.
So while today's ruling was a victory for people over special interests, we can't be lulled into a false sense of security. I still need your help to keep fighting for things like quality health care in the U.S. Senate.
We're up against some very powerful right-wing corporate interests that are willing to spend whatever it takes to try to defeat us.
I don't know that we can match them dollar-for-dollar. But if we stand together, we can answer every misleading attack they throw our way. I can run on my real record of standing up and fighting for what we believe in -- including quality health care for Americans.
That's why reaching our $100,000 grassroots goal before Saturday's midnight reporting deadline is so important. I know we can reach it, but only if people just like you step up today.
It is my privilege and my responsibility to fight for Florida's hard-working families -- for health care, for jobs, for our future. With your help, that's exactly what I will continue to do.
