Happy Birthday Health Law!

Apparently, you must create a spreadsheet:

Supporters have scheduled so many events all this week to mark the day that the pro-overhaul group Health Care for America Now has had to put them on a spreadsheet.

They include everything from a doughnut hole bake sale in Colorado to highlight help for seniors with their drug costs to delivering thank-you cakes to members of Congress who voted for the law in Missouri.

Other edgier events take aim at opponents of the law, such as a "Stop Playing Games With Our Health Care" football game co-sponsored by a group called Common Good on the statehouse lawn in Columbus, Ohio. It will pit "average Ohioans who benefit from the ACA" against Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who has filed suit to have the law declared unconstitutional, "and his team of corporate lobbyists who want to play political football with our health care instead of solving real problems like jobs, foreclosures, and the economy."

This program aired on March 22, 2011. The audio for this program is not available.
