59. I agree and Ann should not be riding on the backs of those who are doing without. Mitt hurt a lot of

People, destroying their jobs and healthcare. While it would be great to feel a sense of solidarity coming from a presidential candidate and their family with what many people suffered, Mitt wants to even remove the ACA. Obama has shown he does care.

I know you know tthis disease is going to hurt your family terribly. The Romneys have no comparison in their lives to what you and yours are going through now. I can't help you but I wish you and your family well. Have had similar things in my life and had to do without. Those who have not done without, as Ann has not done without, have no comprehension of all that will be lost.

I comprehend bitterness, and hurt, and maybe you will feel better when this election is over and you don't have to hear about this. The contrast is so stark to what many Americans are dealing with. I would feel more kinship with Ann if she was advocating to help people without insurance, but I haven't heard her give sympathy to others suffering the disease. Or people without insurance. There is a possibility she has, but why isn't it being used in the campaign to make the Romney appear more human?

It's not wrong to be wealthy. But it's wrong to talk down to people as she has done. She has every advantage, but I haven't heard her express any empathy for others. Her husband says he will sign the Ryan budget to end Medicare and Medicaid and repeal the ACA. Where is the humane vote from the GOP on these matters?

Best wishes from me to you and yours. Sorry I can't do more.
