In Defense of Health Care Reform

I am sharing with you a copy of a Letter To The Editor I have written for my local paper in a rebuttle to yet more attacks on the Obama Administration and "Socialized" Medicine ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Sir,

I fail to understand how folks on the side of the GOP and the Teaparty would continue to deny affordable health insurance to 46 million plus fellow American Citizens. The Presidents proposed reform is not the evil socialist rhetoric painted by private insurance companies who would stand to lose billions by competing with a government sponsored health insurance plan. Nobody wants to do away with private insurance, only make them accountable to the American people. Competition would ensure that everyone receives a fair choice. As of September 2009 45,000 Americans die each year due to lack of affordable health insurance.

Conservatives claim that comprehensive health care reform will lead to government control and rationing of care. Yet private insurers already effectively limit and deny the health care that their policyholders can access.

2,740 Americans died in the September 11, 2001 attack in NYC. We came together then as a Country, appauled. Where is the outrage for the 45,000 who have died every year since? We are all Americans! Let's stop acting like spoiled children and do what's right for our fellow Countrymen and get comprehensive health care reform passed.

Thank you
