Ben Kweller is a singer-songwriter playing a mix of indie rock and power pop influenced songs that was born in San Francisco, CA in 1981, being a part of the group The Bens as well as having a critically praised solo career. In 1982, his family relocated to Emory, TX; his father, Howard Kweller, became the town's first doctor. In 1986, the Kwellers moved to the much larger city of Greenville, TX. Ben himself was exposed to music at a very early age. Read more on Last.fm

On Thursday, I got together with Austin musicians, entrepreneurs, doctors, nurses, and insurance agents to have a roundtable discussion with Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Lloyd Doggett. We discussed the importance of the Affordable Care Act and expressed how the ACA has directly improved our lives. We discussed the flaws and problems.
We brainstormed solutions.
We all agreed that...
the ACA is a step in the right direction.
We should build on it and make it better.
Healthcare is not a partisan issue.
Healthcare is a right not a privilege.
