Dear Editor:

We must pass health care reform. We are the only civilized country in the world not to have comprehensive health care for its citizens.

People are literally dying because they don’t have access to health care because of either lack of insurance that is too expensive or they have “pre-existing conditions” and they have been denied coverage, in this, the wealthiest nation in the world. This is criminal!

Shame on you “leaders” who bask in your own wealth and health care coverage for not passing health care reform long ago because you are too stuck in your small thinking and political muck! Please stop selling all of our souls to the drug and insurance companies. Please have some sense of decency and get your citizens (like you all get!) the health care coverage we all deserve!
