A courageous vote

Dear Editor:

As two of your constituents who occasionally urge you to cast a vote for a cause we support, we want to congratulate you on your courageous vote for the health bill.

We are so tired of hearing it demonized as a government takeover, particularly by people happily on “socialized” Medicare. As the rest of the developed world has recognized for so long this is a moral issue which this great country must finally meet.

You recognized this and you met a historic challenge. How many Americans have lost their lives or suffered the rest of their lives for their inability to obtain health insurance?

We thank you for what you have done for all of us.

Curt and Fleur Strand
