Reform is our hope and our future

I have seen first hand the abuse of our health care system. Living in California, where we have a large population of illegal citizens, our hospitals are used as free first-care by an increasing number.

I also know first hand that others that have become legal citizens bring over family when health care is needed further, taxing our system.

I feel the tax payers of America want a choice. Those that do not have access to health care need the public option.

I feel that most legal citizens of the U.S. do not want to pay for health care of illegals. Average U.S. citizens die every day because they do not have basic care.

The insurance companies with their deep pockets have been pouring dollars into the fight against reform.

The loud minority have not only misrepresented the bill, but infused the debate with an irrational and fanatical voice.

I truly feel that given only the facts of the plan, an overwhelming majority want this reform.

It is the wealthy insurance companies that have skewed the perception of what the public wants.

The existing system is hopelessly broken. The Senators and Congressmen that have superior care do not feel the pain of the average individual. They are "bought off" by lobbyists and donations from insurance and drug companies.

They seem to turn a deaf ear to the needs of their constituency and, like the insurance companies, turn to greed.

This reform must be passed. It is our hope, our future. Either this is a country of strength, or it becomes further crippled as the poor and disadvantaged are once again ignored.

Charity and compassion should start at home.

Let's begin by helping our brothers and our neighbors and raise our own spirit as a compassionate nation.
