We are bombarded with messages to call our senator to tell him to vote no on this healthcare bill. Well, my senator is Lamar Alexander and he helped write the damn thing and thinks it is wonderful. I am not going to stress my blood pressure contacting him.
So this is what we are doing and please understand that I am not bragging, we needed to do something to help someone. We had a power chair in our basement, a Jazzy chair. It was my father-in-law's. We have cleaned it up, got new batteries (2 of them about $200 a piece. We are donating it to a church that has a program for providing medical equipment to the community. Got it out of the basement and one of the wheels is cracked. We are looking to replace it at about $150.
I cannot give Lamar Alexander a heart or a conscience. I live in his hometown. Helped take care of his mother when she was old. He knows these things. We can do this, we can contribute to someone who needs something we have.
Again, not looking for credit, just feels better to do something you can, than grouch to someone whose mind is closed.
