After decades of struggle and a year of debate, comprehensive health care reform has been enacted as the law of the land. And while it will take time to responsibly implement the law, the nation has finally put itself on a path to addressing skyrocketing costs and reining in insurance company abuses. This historic achievement was made possible because of the tremendous energy and commitment of AFSCME members, activists and leaders all over the country. These efforts brought home this victory and made AFSCME shine.
