There are 46 MILLION people in our nation who have no health insurance.

There are 46 MILLION people in our nation who have no health insurance. For the United States, one of the most prosperous in the history of time, that is nothing short of a moral disgrace, especially when health care costs have spiraled out of control.

Christianity teaches that our bodies are the "temples of God." Islam teaches "On God's own nature have we been molded." Hinduism states, "Do not hurt others, do no one injury by thought or deed, utter no word to pain thy fellow creatures."

Insofar as our government has created a climate in which health insurance is denied and people are forced to live in perpetual crisis, our policies and actions fall woefully short of these profound truths.

I urge you to use this upcoming week of May 1-7, Cover the Uninsured Week, to make the commitment to stand on the side of those who need you, resist those who would profit from denying others coverage, and simply do the right thing. We need your leadership. Please use the powers given to you by the people and enact legislation that results in coverage for all.
