Al Franken - U.S. Senator, Minnesota

Dear Daniel,

What an incredible day.

This afternoon I was at the White House to watch President Obama sign comprehensive health insurance reform into law. This is the change Americans have been demanding for so many years.

Tell your family, friends, and neighbors — the following reforms to our health insurance system take effect over the first year:

– Health insurance providers cannot deny any child coverage because of a pre-existing condition
– Insurance companies can no longer drop someone when he or she becomes ill
– Young adults can stay on their parents’ health insurance plan up to their 27th birthday
– Health Insurers must now reveal how much money is spent on overhead
– New health insurance plans must cover checkups and other preventative care without co-pays
– New measures will be implemented to help eliminate health insurance waste, fraud, and abuse
– Small businesses (fewer than 50 employees) will get tax credits covering up to 50% of premiums
– Seniors on Medicare will get a rebate to fill the “donut hole” in their drug coverage
– Insurers will be required to put more premiums dollars toward actual health care services, not   administration, advertising, or profits
– Insurance premium increases will be have to be reviewed and justified
– Lifetime caps on the amount of insurance a person can have will be banned
– A temporary high-risk pool will be set up to cover adults with pre-existing conditions

I would never have been elected to the Senate, and we would never have gotten health reform done, without your unwavering support. This is what real change looks like. Today, from the bottom of my heart — thank you.

Paul Wellstone said “the future belongs to those who are passionate and work hard.” Today is a great day for the people of Minnesota and the country. Because of your passion and hard work, Minnesotans and Americans have a much brighter future than ever before.

Thank you again — for all you’ve done, and all you’ll do.
