Congress should work with Obama, not against

The Affordable Care Act will be good for the American people. It provides more freedom for us to make our health care choices.

It can impact the cost of health care by keeping insurance premiums from skyrocketing, which makes it impossible for the American people to have or keep affordable health care coverage. The Republicans should start focusing on how to make things better, rather than focusing on how to tear things down. As Americans, we should be supporting the efforts of the leadership of this country, and the Democrats and Republicans should be supporting and working more collaboratively with the president on keeping health care reform alive.

Let's start working together and have the people who are supposed to represent us (Congress) work with the president, not against him. When they work against the president, they work against the American people.
