We're at a unique time in our country, with more support for universal health care than ever before. 

Because of this, those who want to keep the status quo--for their profit, not yours--will rail against universal care using tired arguments like socialized medicine.

My name is Mariah Osienger and I am a student at  Anselmo-Merna School.  Our third grade class is researching states for our States Fair project.  Each of my classmates has picked a state and I have chosen Colorado.  I want to learn everything I can about your great state!  I would appreciate any help you can give me.

If you could send a letter or a package of rocks or soil samples, special crops or products, postcards, pictures of important landmarks, pamphlets, brochures, or small souvenirs, it would really be helpful.
