How did we get here? Late last Thursday, the Senate came one vote -- one single vote -- away from passing a health care bill that would have devastated the lives of millions of Americans.
The fact that it failed is an undeniable testament to you. To the calls you made, the letters you wrote, the rallies you attended. To the mantra we always believed in during the Obama administration: One voice can change a room.
But we got to this moment, quite simply, because every part of this process was wrong -- and understanding that will help us with an equally important question: What comes next?
There's only one answer: We work together to make people's lives better.
Mitch McConnell and Senate leaders wanted to help this administration score a win. Now is the time to forget about political points.
They wanted to draft the bill in secret committees and back rooms. Now is the time for transparency, debate, and an open process that seeks bipartisan solutions.
They wanted to ignore health care experts, doctors, insurers, hospitals, and worst of all, the American people. Now is the time to listen and solicit valuable feedback.
Here's what cannot happen next: an administration scheming to sabotage Obamacare, rooting for the failure of markets and pulling resources away that could help Americans get the relief they need.
It must be a real and honest attempt to help all Americans get access to quality, affordable health care.
That's the only way forward -- and to make sure they understand that, we need to keep standing strong:https://my.ofa.us/Keep-Fighting-For-Heath-Care

Across a bridge, over a river, into a dream.

Nestled riverside under the Brooklyn Bridge with sweeping views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty, The River Café serves a classic New American menu using only the finest and freshest ingredients available.
The changing tides of fashion and trends may come and go, but Michael O’Keeffe’s vision of timelessness expressed as a Restaurant will always be
The River Café.
The River Café.
It has never left its mooring under the Brooklyn Bridge, but still journeys ahead each day toward the goal of seeking out the finest ingredients for every detail of the dining experience and delivering them to guests from all over the world.
To endure so consistently as a culinary destination for forty years accompanied by an unwavering commitment to excellence is nothing short of marvelous. Bravissimo Buzzy.
