    Val Arkoosh’s election to Congress will be important for President Obama and the next President, as well as the entire country. She will be the one person in Congress who thoroughly understands the Affordable Care Act and how it can be easily improved, to work better for us all. She will be the Elizabeth Warren of health care. She also understands businss, budgets and jobs. Everytime I hear Dr. Arkoosh speak, I am more impressed with her broad background, her energy and her thoughtful responses.

    Wow- there are some county officials on here, as well as all the municipals. Is there anyone in Montco not on this list or Boyle’s?

    GO VAL!
