The Massachusetts Democratic Party has organized a “Thank You Teddy!” rally in Boston to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision this morning — and as a reminder that Ted Kennedy, the longtime senior senator from Massachusetts, was a key champion of universal health care.
“Senator Ted Kennedy fought his entire life for this cause and believed that access to quality health care was a matter of right and not a privilege,” the Democrats write on their website. “Tonight, we thank and honor Senator Kennedy for his work.”
Nancy Pelosi also paid tribute to Kennedy today, saying “I knew that when he left us he would go to heaven and help pass the bill.”
