(BOSTON, MA) – “Community Catalyst congratulates the 60 courageous Senators who today voted to bring the country one step closer to quality affordable health care for millions of Americans. As a national advocacy organization working in more than 40 states to ensure consumers have a strong voice in the health reform debate, we are deeply grateful to our elected officials who responded to American’s call for change in our health care system. Our Senators who voted “yes” to advance health reform legislation recognize the moral and economic imperative of providing health security for the millions of Americans who lack it. We look forward to a final Senate vote, which will bring meaningful reform to our broken health care system and great relief to the millions of Americans who have suffered far too long with inadequate, costly health care.”
