I recently heard Joe Radinovich speak. He described the difficulty he had coping with the murder of his mother as a teenager, how his teachers stepped in and helped him find his direction again. He said all of us need to be about the business of building up society, not tearing it down. When people are down on their luck for whatever reason, it's our responsibility to see that they have a chance to rebuild. He reminded us that in this country we have agreed that there are certain basic things we will provide for our citizens, Social Security and Medicare, for example. Health care ought to be one of those basics. We must reverse the trend of working people losing ground to special interests in Washington. He has refused campaign donations from corporate PACs. There is no one more qualified and more deserving of the public trust than Joe.
