I write letters, White House Style

I wrote a letter to the president:

Health care reform can still pass, and the Democratic image can be regained after this Massachusetts election fiasco.

I would consider scrapping what you have, and throw a curve ball to take over the news cycle from the Republicans.

Pass a simple bill (through reconciliation) that expands Medicare to people 50 and over and 20 and under. Write simple rules for the insurance companies that cover what’s left: 1. no denial of preexisting conditions. 2. At least 90% of premiums have to go to health care. 3. No denial of pregnancy or birth control coverage, or unfair treatment of women.

  1. After the recent Supreme Court decision on campaign spending, I think I may be done with politics. I give up. Unless you wrote that letter on a hundred dollar bill, my guess is it will be ignored.

    What a downer.

      I know!

      Who would think I’d be packing for Canada with a Democratic president and a Democratic majority in both houses? If only I was a corporation with billions of dollars in profits, then I would have freedom of speech to petition my government on this issue!

  2. Genius. Why aren’t you in government, again?

      Too many skeletons in my closet. Wait ’til someone nominates me for Surgeon General. Ooh, the Enquirer will be full of some good stories.
