Health Care Reform

Dear Editor,

Congress is now attempting to pass a bill which will determine the availability and quality of medical care available to the people of the United States. This reform will move our health care into the province of national government control, like Amtrak, the Post Office, Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. A majority of our national elected officials tell us it is for our own good, that costs will be reduced and more Americans will receive quality health care. This legislation, based on the Kennedy Plan, will exempt members of Congress from the provisions of the new law.If it is good enough for the citizens, why isn't it good enough for our servants(?) in the legislature. How can any plan that is unacceptable for our elected representatives be good enough for us, the citizens of the United States? When members of the Senate and House of Representatives are ready to pass a bill that they and their families can live with, I'll be willing to give it a good hard look. Until then, read the fine print and don't get fooled this time.
