"Good afternoon, and a good afternoon it is when we are here standing before the future - the young people of our country. I am pleased to be here with Chris Van Hollen, and thank him for his leadership in this Congress. And the person of the hour, Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper, who introduced the Young Adult Health Coverage Act of 2009. We are going to have an important announcement about that, which ensures that every American under the age of 30 has affordable health insurance.

"It is great to stand here with Ari Matusiak of Young Invincibles -- you have heard that expression before -- Young Invincibles, an organization formed to get young adults behind the campaign for health insurance reform. I also want to recognize Erica Williams of Campus Progress and so many passionate leaders of our next generation who are with us here. They drove the campaign for change last year, and they are driving the movement for health insurance reform today. I want to thank you, Krisja Hendricks, for joining us to share her personal story. Your struggles - like those of so many other young Americans - are the real motivation we should need to pass health insurance reform this year.
