Labor leaders on Monday called on Congress to pass healthcare reform legislation in honor of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Labor leaders on Monday called on Congress to pass healthcare reform legislation in honor of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy.

AFL-CIO President John Sweeney told a crowd of about 150 labor union representatives that labor unions would do more than just mourn Sen. Kennedy (D-Mass.).

Were going to organize and honor Teds legacy by fighting like Hell for healthcare reform, Sweeney said at a Washington rally for healthcare reform at the unions headquarters

Gerald McEntee, AFSCMEs president, also invoked Kennedys name, saying to applause that union members cant let Ted Kennedy down and must push forward for healthcare reform.

Because of him, our destination is in sight, McEntee said, but weve got to keep working. We cant let Ted Kennedy down. We cant let America down.
