"American Character."

Thank You.

One of my favorite speeches to date.

I may be self-employed and may have been denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition (depression) - but this is a no-brainer regardless: Everyone has the right to see a doctor and be treated. This is as simple as the golden rule.

I loved it when the right side of the room was forced to stand and clap for holding people accountable, though I was only fleetingly satisfied seeing them fume like little kids on time-out when they were shamed toward the end. I wish they would take the offered olive branch. What a country we'd live in if our leaders had genuine discourse.
