The first lady explains why she thinks all women should be for health-care reform. Do you agree?

Watch the video, produced by the White House, and let them know what you think. Plus, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will answer some of the questions you submit in the next week.

Well, the link for the video doesn't work (I just get a page where I can leave a comment about health care reform).

I have always thought that it was shocking really that health care in the US was so poor for so many people. It is also bad for businesses to have the situation as it is, so on several counts it is high time for some credible reform.

That said (and without actually seeing the video) it always sticks in my craw when people declare that I should hold a certain opinion because I am female. I am human first, female second.

No worries, I found the link in the ad further up the page (although, btw, videos play really badly, maybe because I have a mac).

Now that I have watched it, the same thing holds. Any human being should be in favor of a better solution than the current one, not just the female ones or more so the female ones.
