In the video to your right, Senator Ted Kennedy expresses an anger that many Americans feel right now about the Republican Party's passionate resistance to positive health care reform in this country. Their latest step backward is a Bush embraced attempt to revoke the health care of millions of American children. Members of the GOP, like Trent Lott, are resisting health care for children because it would mean higher taxes on cigarettes and Kennedy is understandably fed up. He talks about the everyday struggles uninsured parents must endure to care for their kids in a stirring oratory. As Kennedy says, "What would the American people rather have? Coverage for their children or continued conflict in Iraq?"
