I learned of her passing this evening at our staff party, and all of us were totally bummed. She was a powerful voice for healthcare reform and the single payer system. She knew that while she had the best insurance coverage in the country, women with her cancer who didn't have such, had no options at all.
And she fought to change that for everyone. Now, she is gone.
Now look where this Congress is taking the rest of us...
Rest in Peace, Elizabeth.
