Vicki Reggie Kennedy said she felt “great joy” when House members passed healthcare reform late Sunday night, and that it was a vote she knew her husband, the late Sen. Ted Kennedy would have been “exhilarated.”
Sen. Ted Kennedy spent much of his Washington career on healthcare issues.
During an appearance on Good Morning America, Vicki Reggie Kennedy said:
“I think he would’ve been exhilarated. You know he was always a person about moving forward. You know, he would be thrilled. When he endorsed Barack Obama in 2008, it was a vision that he had that this day would come. He believed that he would be the president who would finally be the one to help to push through comprehensive health care reform and he was right.”
