The loss of Senator Ted Kennedy is another blow for healthcare reform in the U.S. For many years he was the force behind the effort to insure universal healthcare for all Americans. Now that it seems we may finally be drawing closer to getting a bill passed, it is sad that Ted Kennedy will not be able to share the joy of achievement. However, there are still forces working against healthcare reform, and Senator Kennedy’s death will not turn back those forces, as reported in the N.Y. Times. Those of us who believe in universal healthcare must work harder than ever to make sure that Ted Kennedy’s dream does not get frittered away in partisan bickering that does no good for anyone.
