Dear President Obama
I see that you’re trying to press congress into National Health Care. I like to ask you, how about the real problem to be addressed that is, Social Security and Medicare? As a citizen, I am concerned that the problem is very real and that Social Security will go broke by 2016! The administration and congress has taken a blind eye to the problem.
First, why are you pressing National Health Care? We have Medicade that there for those who are poor and need extra help. We have to revamp Medicare to make sure it’s good dollar wise and to end waste and rip offs by people and insurance companies too who take advantage of a good thing? For example over billing and those who can work but choose not to?
I should not have to pay for illegals who are here or those who abuse the welfare system. Unless its War, injury, or lost of a job that is it. A hand up, not a hand out as we now have! We need tort reform and wellness type programs that were brought up but not acted on!
I worked hard for many years and want to have what I put into Social Security every week. As of now, stats show that there are more Baby Boomers retiring and nothing to pay out! I suggest the congress act to raise the age of retirement to 68 years old and perhaps put into investment groups as an add-on?
I don’t know about you, but I like the insurance I have and believe strongly hat we have to put our actions towards FIXING Medicare and Social Security and not give deep cuts in these programs that many depend on?
We don’t need national health care that is over priced, over government, and most likely lines for medical help? Look at Europe and see what I mean. This is wrong and I hope you have the guts to start addressing this and not sweep under the rug! Scrap National Health Care and get to the real problems at hand Mr. Obama!
