*&#*$&@*# Follow-Up

Used under the fair use doctrine for commentary purposes. Wish my health care was this clear-cut.

I’m doing this, yet it feels as effective as yelling into an empty room:
Congressman Simpson,

What's a guy to do when he gets a letter from his health insurance provider saying that come the end of June he's going to have to pay more for health insurance than he's currently paying for his home mortgage?

The individual health insurance market is murder. And yet all I hear from the GOP is that we need to turn to the private market for health care solutions. The private market sucks rocks, congressman.

What's worse is that I don't feel that writing to my congressional delegation will do anything to fix the problem, or that it's even fixable by anyone outside of those guys who write those utopian novels.

Feeling slightly depressed,

Brian Davidson
Sheesh. That depressed me even more, just writing it out. I sent that to Mike Simpson, and a similarly-worded missive to Sen. Mike Crapo as well. Expecting back the traditional form letters, the glass of water and the pat on the head, because this kind of rhetoric just isn’t heard over the partisan noise in Washington except at election time, when such drivel can be used a fodder for campaign stops when all sorts of wild promises are made with 99.9 percent of those in the audience cheering them on while at least fifty percent of us know such promises won’t be kept. At all.
