LTTE for your approval
Edited on Mon Mar-29-10 11:50 AM by ashling
I have just written the follwing letter to the editor using the data provided here http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

I haven't sent it yet, so if you see any glaring typos, etc. please let me know as soon as possible.

I humbly submit this as a template for others to use.


Congressman Burgess is working hard for the constituents of Texas Congressional District 26 . . . or so he would have us believe.

But who are his constituents?

Are they the 558,000 residents with health insurance in this District whose coverage will be improved by the Health Care Reform?

Perhaps they are among the 158,000 families and 13,600 small businesses which will receive tax credits and other assistance to help them afford coverage.

Maybe they are the 85,000 Medicare recipients who will no longer find themselves navigating a donut hole alone.

They might be one of the 104,000 uninsured residents who will now be covered, or one of 21,200 residents who can now obtain coverage despite their pre-existing condition.

Could they be one of the 72,000 young adults from the District who can now be covered on their parents health insurance.

Maybe they work for one of the hospitals or other health providers here which will benefit from a $249 million reduction in uncompensated care.

Who is the Congressman working so hard for? Not for us.

Repeal and Replace Congressman Burgess with Democrat Neil Durance.

1. Nice, with one minor correction
In line 3, it should be "whose" instead of "who's."
