Leader Pelosi. Good afternoon, everyone. So I had an invitation from Ady Barkan to come be here with you all today. He is so wonderful. If I had a wish for you all it would be that you could have heard him speak out in favor of the Affordable Care Act and against the dark cloud tax scam passed by Republicans and what it did to health care in our country. If I had a bigger wish though, it would be for Ady to find an intervention and he would be healthy again for his son, Carl.
Leader Pelosi. Good morning, everyone. Oh, it is so lovely to see all of you at Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day. Thank very much for being here.
