A plea for fairness from D.C.

To the Editor:

A wise good man once said, approximately, “politics is about making people’s lives better.” 

I don’t believe that our representatives in Washington will improve a huge percentage of people’s lives, people they elected to represent, if they give in to this abomination of health care reform legislation.

By now, our senators and representatives have certainly seen the Congressional Budget Office score. Of course, it is all about tax cuts for the wealthy. The wealthy are a tiny fraction of the people they are elected to represent. But this legislation will kill people, and it will really kill jobs, unlike the “so-called” job-killing acts of our great former president, acts which afforded the majority of Americans genuine protections, real protections, against financial abuse, against health care robbery, against the destruction of our environment.

I want to plead with our elected representatives to work for America and not just for the chosen, clever, greedy few who always need more and more. Please oppose the current attempt. Work with everyone in transparency and keep America great.
