Eric Massa - Health Care

Thank you, Congressman Massa, for an eloquent, informative, principled and non-politicized talk on health care on Need To Know tonight. I'm starting to despair of people over this issue but you have provided an example of sanity. I'm glad you won your election, and even though I'm not in your district, that you represent me. I feel I can trust you to do the work and that you will guard our well being.
