An Open Letter To President Obama
by Amy Lindorff
Dear Mr. President,
In 2008, you said that “the problem is not that folks are trying to avoid getting health care; the problem is they can’t afford it.” Wrong. The problem is that I can’t get to the building where there is a man who is going to explain my options and help me with the application and take care of getting me all set up with a reasonably priced plan. I can’t get there because you are in town and it is taking an hour to drive five miles. Even for LA, that is bad traffic. Get out of my way so I can get the healthcare that you are trying to make sure everyone can have.
