Health Care For All applauds the Governor for filling former Senator Edward Kennedy’s seat as quickly and thoughtfully as possible. It is vitally important that Massachusetts have two senators and full representation in Congress. We welcome longtime Kennedy staffer Paul Kirk to the job and are confident he will carry the torch for Senator Kennedy’s constituents.
We look forward to working with our new interim senator and continuing the gains of health reform in Massachusetts. Accessible, affordable, and quality health care for Massachusetts consumers is our top priority and we believe Paul Kirk will show the same deep commitment to the people of the Commonwealth as he lives into the legacy of Senator Kennedy and his life’s work.
