Forget the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), I want the Mark Kirk health insurance plan for every American.

I’m not talking about the federal legislation the Republican U.S. senator has proposed to replace Obamacare, knowing full well it is unlikely to ever be passed. I’m referring to the health insurance that covered Kirk’s recovery from a serious stroke, even if that plan doesn’t include the caregiver who may, or may not, have worked on Kirk’s political campaign.
