An Open Letter to Congressman Elton Gallegly

Dear Congressman Gallegly,

I realize that you will probably vote against the Health Care Reform bill.  However, I wanted you to know how much I think we need it…even if it is flawed.

As the only industrialized country in the world without a national health care program, as a nation whose health care costs are rising faster than those of other countries, as we are unable to demonstrate longer life or better health than they can, and as nearly 40 million of our citizens are without insurance protection, something is desperately needed.  Now, not later.

You should also know that you and your colleagues have squandered a historic opportunity to have been part of a united coalition to solve this health care crisis.  And, through placing political ambitions above the common good, have missed the chance to produce an even better solution than the one before us.

It is unfortunate that I, your other constituents and 40 million more Americans will be unable to point to you and say “He helped, he did his part.  Thank you Elton.”

Nevetheless, this bill will pass and you will have missed your chance.

Thank you.

    Quality letter but a waste of time. Remember: Don’t waste your pearls on the swine.And Gallegly certainly is a member of that family.

    The Republicans can’t even agree on what day of the week it is, if it is proposed by either Obama or any democrat. All they are interested in doing is wrecking or stopping the current administration.

    I still think it’s time to clean house and get some fresh air in Washington.
    This Health Care issue should have been resolved a long time ago.
    Sounds like a lot of “Kids” deciding who should be “Top Man”. Why not just work together…what’s the problem?
