Money for Health Care not for War

Letter to the Editor

Even though health care reform will actually save money all I hear out of the news media is that we don’t have enough money for health care. Not true! What we have enough money for is the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. What we have enough money for tax cuts for the rich. We have enough money for bank and insurance company bailouts. We have enough money for tax credits for big oil. We have enough money to give away trillions to the super rich, but we don’t have enough money for health care? Give me a break!

You claim to think “outside the box”. It seems like all you do is regurgitate the old worn out liberal lines. I agree that we have wasted a lot of federal funds in Iraq and Afghanistan. Instead of spouting the same old progressive thoughts, how about offering some new ideas. You like to quote the constitution. Where in the constitution or bill of rights does it say anything about the federal government providing health insurance for all? This country needs to get back to offering a true safety net for the SMALL minority of people for a SHORT period of time so that they can get back on their feet. Beyond that, the government should send the message that the individual is responsible for their well being in pursuing life, liberty and happiness.
