Colorado owes a great deal of gratitude to Rep. John Salazar for his courageous vote to reform our broken health-care

Put simply, Salazar stood up for families across the country by voting for this historic health-care bill that
increases access to quality, affordable health care for all Americans.
I applaud Rep. Salazar for his dedication to the women and families of Colorado. Thanks to him for making our voices
