Letter from Organizing for America:
Will you help me set the record straight about seniors and reform by writing a quick letter to the editor of your local paper?
You can write and submit your letter online in just a few minutes, and OFA will give you all the tips and info you need to begin. Your words could end up on one of the most-read pages of the paper. Even if your letter isn't published, it will help ensure your local newspapers understand their readers want the facts.
It's so important that we help set the record straight so that seniors aren't frightened out of supporting the reform we need. Insurance reform will strengthen Medicare, give seniors more choices of doctors, and help each and every American.
As seniors and engaged citizens, our voices have tremendous power, and our country needs us to speak up now.
No, I won't. I refuse to help on any reform except single payer HR 676. You people are farting around and it looks to me like we will get nothing except a mandate that will require people that can't afford it, to buy insurance from the very companies that have been screwing us for years.
I am one of those seniors you think is afraid Medicare will change for the worse. Not so, we are afraid you will screw up and not provide Medicare for all. Personally your letter offends me. Seniors aren't as a group any stupider than the rest of the population.
Senator Kennedy was a wealthy man who cared about the less than wealthy. His promotion of the public option health plan is an example of his dedication to the average American. Let your Congressperson know you want and expect action on this in September.
