Here is a Speech he wrote 29 years ago:::
"We cannot have a fair prosperity in isolation from a fair society. So I will continue to stand for a national health insurance. We must—we must not surrender—we must not surrender to the relentless medical inflation that can bankrupt almost anyone and that may soon break the budgets of government at every level. Let us insist on real controls over what doctors and hospitals can charge, and let us resolve that the state of a family's health shall never depend on the size of a family's wealth.

The president, the vice-president, the members of Congress have a medical plan that meets their needs in full, and whenever senators and representatives catch a little cold, the Capitol physician will see them immediately, treat them promptly, fill a prescription on the spot. We do not get a bill even if we ask for it, and when do you think was the last time a member of Congress asked for a bill from the federal government? And I say again, as I have before, if health insurance is good enough for the president, the vice-president, the Congress of the United States, then it's good enough for you and every family in America."
~ Ted Kennedy Speech
Written 29 YEARS ago.
So for Anyone who asks What is the Rush ? My Question is WHEN is the Time, Haven't we Waited Long Enough ?

You can see how he got the nickname *The Lion*.... his roar/rants are impassioned & sincere.
Hard to think this damned issue has been bypassed & back burnered for so many years.
