Over the past few months, people from all over the country have been talking about how their lives have been touched by health care reform.
Today, we'd like to share one of the stories that moved us.

Renee is a mother of three young children who was blindsided by cancer. She was rejected from her husband's health insurance, and several other private plans, because of a pre-existing condition -- leaving her stuck with a plan that had a yearly limit and additional stress that the care she needed might not be covered.

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Renee now has the coverage she needs.

You have to hear Renee tell her story -- then, pass it on to show others exactly why health care reform matters.

Take 6 minutes and check out this video highlighting both the inequality and the difference between our perception of inequality and the actual numbers. The reality is often not what we think it is.

So-called right to work laws are wrong for working and middle class families.  These laws make paying union dues optional - even though unions are required by law to represent all workers under their agreements.  In other words, the laws give people the right to shirk - since all the benefits of a union contract still cover everyone, regardless if they pay dues or not.  As a result, unions will have trouble representing members and negotiating contracts because bargaining power will be lost.

The effort to pass a right to shirk law is currently under way in Ohio.  Recently these laws were passed in Indiana and Michigan.  In Ohio, the same people who wanted to take away our collective bargaing rights with Senate Bill 5 are behind the right to shirk.  It's crucial that we educate ourselves and our co-workers, families, neighbors and friends about the truth behind this deceitful effort.   When was the last time billionaires spent millions of dollars to give more rights and freedom in the workplace?
