I couldn’t sleep last night. There were so many things I wanted to tell you. I had to keep saying to myself “it’s alright, you can write them tomorrow.” So, before I begin the post I promised yesterday on why women should be involved in politics, I have a few additional comments to make about the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
