I support this change

This change is the right step, although just a step, toward equality and as well as affordable health care.  This will not cost tax payers more money, in fact if it reduces visits to emergency rooms by those currently uninsured it will ultimately save tax dollars.  This plan makes sense both fiscally and ethically.
