Dear Congressman Blunt,
Reducing our deficit is important to our nation’s future, but these proposals are bad for consumers. For example, handing Medicare over to the private insurance companies will actually increase seniors’ health costs up to $12,500 a year, in part because the insurance companies will be adding in their markup, something that Medicare does not do. Why would we want that?
And gutting the health care law will eliminate new rules that hold insurance companies accountable – such as preventing them from rejecting you for a pre-existing condition, and making sure the bulk of your insurance premiuis spent on health care, not the company’s bureaucracy.
I am quite serious regarding this strong suggestion. Your constituents should have the same health care provided to the Congress and Senate. Your conscience, not politics, should be enough impetus to make a drastic change such as this. Taxes for the super-rich should be put back in place. Warren Buffet has stated he would be willing to pay his share of taxes. President Obama stated his family has more than enough money and he, too would be glad to pay taxes. We cannot, with good conscience, add to the burden of our citizens, especially the young and older generations.
Taxing the super-rich would help with the financials for health care, Our social security tax funds have become more of a general fund, allowing for the funds to be used for other purposes. We cannot rob ":Peter to pay Paul."
I am a retiree and had surgery recently for a torn rotator cuff. I have Medicare plus Part B with Humana Coventry. I now have bills in excess of $1,000 after insurance has paid their part. You cannot imagine what a stress this puts on a individual or family. Having to decide whether you do without groceries or prescriptions to be able to pay this overwhelming amount is not right.
I pray you will take these suggestions under considerations.
