11-year-old Marcelas Owens flew across the country from Seattle this week to join Senate Democrats in Washington, DC to rally support for an end to insurance industry abuses. Marcelas has been an advocate for health care reform since his mother died after she fell ill and lost her job and insurance coverage. "I am here because of my mom," said Owens. "My mom was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension in 2006. She missed so much work she lost her job. And when my mom lost her job, she lost her health care. And losing her health care ended up costing her her life." Senate Democrats are working to put an end to insurance industry abuses that have denied coverage to hard working Americans when they get sick and need it the most.
