Pelosi: Health Insurance Reform Essential for Women
Date:10/6/2009

"I want to thank my colleagues for their excellent presentations, their strong leadership, their constant work to pass this legislation this year. Since we began, we have been joined my Congresswoman Jackie Speier of California, Congresswoman Lois Capps of California, and I want to thank our friends in the Feminist Majority, and from all of the groups who are here and acknowledge Peg Yorkin, who is the inspiration for so much of this.

"And if you are a senior, as some of us here are, and you're on Medicare, this legislation works for you in the following ways: seniors, men and women alike, benefit. First of all, by closing the donut-hole -- which means lowering the prescription cost to the American people. Secondly, by allowing you to retain your ben
