Letter i sent to White House

7 Nov

This here is a letter that I wrote to the White House. Just after Obama took office. I will also post there reply. It didn’t take them long to reply but then they didn’t say much.

The President takes time to call a baseball team. I bet a person who near has even met the President wrote the response. If you have letters or emails to the President, White House , Pentagon, or other Political Figures. I will post them as well.

There are a lot of scare tactics out there about this bill and what it will include. I would like to view this bill in its entirety. I wish as an American I new who exactly I could trust. Many seem out for there lobbies and others out for reasons unseen or unknown. I know that I am 25 years old and have yet to trust my own government. It is a scary feeling not knowing if the whole truth is being told. I wish I could sit down with President Obama and Congress and express my concerns as a Husband, Father, Son,Unemployed,Non health care having AMERICAN. I am a no one with only one voice that will never be heard. My family feels this country to be a fend for yourself, no small voice heard country and will remain so. Its scary to think this is the Land of the Free and Home of the brave. What have we been reduced to?

White House Response
Dear Friend:

Thank you for writing. I have heard from countless
Americans struggling to afford health insurance, as well as health
professionals striving to provide care, and I appreciate your
perspective.

After nearly 100 years of talk and frustration, after decades
of trying, and a year of sustained effort and debate, the United
States Congress finally declared that America’s workers and
America’s families and America’s small businesses deserve the
security of knowing that here, in this country, neither illness nor
accident should endanger the dreams they’ve worked a lifetime to
achieve.

At a time when the pundits said it was no longer possible,
we rose above the weight of our politics. We pushed back on the
undue influence of special interests. We didn’t give in to mistrust
or to cynicism or to fear. Instead, we proved that we are still a
people capable of doing big things and tackling our biggest
challenges. We proved that this government–a government of the
people and by the people–still works for the people.

This vote answers the prayers of every American who has
hoped deeply for something to be done about a health care system
that works for insurance companies, but not for ordinary people.
For most Americans, this debate has never been about abstractions,
the fight between right and left, Republican and Democrat–it’s
always been about something far more personal. It’s about every
American who knows the shock of opening an envelope to see that
their premiums just shot up again when times are already tough
enough. It’s about every parent who knows the desperation of
trying to cover a child with a chronic illness only to be told “no”
again and again and again. It’s about every small business owner
forced to choose between insuring employees and staying open for
business. They are why we committed ourselves to this cause.

This vote is not a victory for any one party–it’s a victory
for them. It’s a victory for the American people. And it’s a victory
for common sense.

Now, it probably goes without saying that this vote will
give rise to a frenzy of instant analysis. There will be tallies of
Washington winners and losers, predictions about what it means
for Democrats and Republicans, for my poll numbers, for my
Administration. But long after the debate fades away and the
prognostication fades away and the dust settles, what will remain
standing is not the government-run system some feared, or the
status quo that serves the interests of the insurance industry, but a
health care system that incorporates ideas from both parties–a
system that works better for the American people.

If you have health insurance, this reform just gave you
more control by reining in the worst excesses and abuses of the
insurance industry with some of the toughest consumer protections
this country has ever known–so that you are actually getting what
you pay for.

If you don’t have insurance, this reform gives you a chance
to be a part of a big purchasing pool that will give you choice and
competition and cheaper prices for insurance. And it includes the
largest health care tax cut for working families and small
businesses in history–so that if you lose your job and you change
jobs, start that new business, you’ll finally be able to purchase
quality, affordable care and the security and peace of mind that
comes with it.

This reform is the right thing to do for our seniors. It
makes Medicare stronger and more solvent, extending its life by
almost a decade. And it’s the right thing to do for our future. It
will reduce our deficit by more than $100 billion over the next
decade, and more than $1 trillion in the decade after that.

So this isn’t radical reform. But it is major reform. This
legislation will not fix everything that ails our health care system.
But it moves us decisively in the right direction.

This is what change looks like.

Now as momentous as this vote is, it’s not the end of this
journey. The Senate will take up revisions to this legislation that
the House has embraced, and these are revisions that have
strengthened this law and removed provisions that had no place in
it. Some have predicted another siege of parliamentary
maneuvering in order to delay adoption of these improvements. I
hope that’s not the case. It’s time to bring this debate to a close
and begin the hard work of implementing this reform properly on
behalf of the American people. This year, and in years to come,
we have a solemn responsibility to do it right.

This does not represent the end of the work that faces our
country. The work of revitalizing our economy goes on. The work
of promoting private sector job creation goes on. The work of
putting American families’ dreams back within reach goes on.
And we march on, with renewed confidence, energized by this
victory on their behalf.

In the end, what this does represent is another stone firmly
laid in the foundation of the American Dream. We answered the
call of history as so many generations of Americans have before
us. When faced with crisis, we did not shrink from our challenge–
we overcame it. We did not avoid our responsibility–we
embraced it. We did not fear our future–we shaped it.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama
