U.S. News and World Report: Activist: Scott Brown Victory Not a Referendum on Healthcare
After last night’s election, progressives and healthcare reform advocates are understandably discouraged. But they say the last thing Democrats should do right now is back down on healthcare.
“To interpret this as a national referendum on healthcare would be a mistake,” says Richard Kirsch, national director of Health Care for America Now, the largest reform advocacy group. “What the Congress needs to understand is that people expect Democrats and people in government to get something done. Using this as an excuse not to do healthcare would be totally self-defeating.”
