To Diane Ravnik,

The month of June is history. Your claim that McNerney had overwhelming support of health care reform in June may or may not be correct, but as of the date of your letter (August 21st) nothing could be further from the truth.

I get the feeling that (and being that McNerney will not face his constituents he may also feel this) many here in District 11 would rather see a lynching than see the passing of the health care reform these traitors are trying to stick us with.

WAKE-UP!!! The first clue that something is amiss is the fact that Berry Soetoro (acting president) has tried hard to push this scheme through Congress so fast that there is no time to read the bill. A no-brainer on that one.

Second, and you hit the nail right on the head, but still can't see it," health care costs are out of control with insurance companies the only beneficiaries of business as usual." THIS IS THE REASON THAT HEALTH CARE IS BROKE AND IS WHAT NEEDS TO BE REFORMED!!!!!

The insurance companies are ripping us off and Washington is helping them. What do you think the lobbyist do? They buy off the self serving rats in Washington. Maybe you are one of them.

The facts and figures are out there, I posted them once, the amount of proffit the insurers have made each and every year for the last ten or so years is unbelievable. It started with deregulation in the Regan Administration and just steamed rolled since then, regardless of which traitor sets up shop in Washington.

ANY HEALTH CARE REFORM that does not address these PROFFITS as the main issue of the reform is ABSOLUTELY CORRUPT as is those that promote it.

Is there anybody that can refute this? Lets here it.

WAKE-UP AMERICANS, YOU OWE THAT MUCH TO YOUR KIDS. The REFORM BILL that they are trying to pass is all about the government's control over us and nothing else. A WOLF IN SHEEPS CLOTHING.

Anyone who cannot see obama and his supporters for what they are is blind. He is obvioulsy intent on taking over our government and then ditating how we will live our lives. The news today that the White House contracted with an outside company to email us is beyond the level of power they are supposed to have. To divulge information like to an outside company is a significant breech of our rights and just think with what he will do with healthcare and the information which comes with it. This guy needs to go.

Where was this survey taken in June for over whelming Health Care Reform? I certianly never saw it. Maybe some repair needs to be made to the Health Care industry, but this over haul is just to much.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
