Let It Be


After the long and winding road toward health care reform came to a hopeful end this week, Ted Kennedy's son, Congressman Patrick Kennedy, visited his father's grave on Monday and left a note:

"Dad, the unfinished business is done."

So, let's once again honor the man, for whom health care for all Americans was a priority and simply move along. Millions will be insured and millions will no longer be denied coverage because of some arbitrary insurance company ruling.

Let the unfinished business be done, and let Ted Kennedy rest in peace.

Simple, but well said.

Thank you Ted Kennedy, for your life work. Too bad he wasn't here to see it.

It is a shame that it was Ted Kennedy who snubbed his nose at Nixon's compromise offer on health care. Kennedy turned down what would have been a much better deal for Americans than what we have now. Much better and endorsed by a Republican president. I think this slip is why health care mattered so much to Ted over the last 30 years.
