copy of letter I just sent to our local paper:

Dear Editor and neighbors:

I was so angry I could just SPIT after recieving a card from an outfit calling itself the COALITION FOR MEDICARE CHOICES encouraging me to write a "handwritten letter" to Congressman Brian Baird to "protect Medicare Advantage".

After just a little bit of research via google.com and other internet research sites, I was able to learn that the COALITION FOR MEDICARE CHOICES is nothing more than a lobbying organisation for huge insurance companies.

They are NOT worried about the quality or quantity of care that you or I recieve. NO, thier only concern is to thier shareholders and thier PROFITS. The CEO'S of these huge corporations that rip us off in the name of health care continue to reap gigantic multimillion dollar salaries and bonuses while our premiums go up and quality of care goes down.

The COALITION FOR MEDICARE CHOICES has a history of sponsoring "get togethers" and getting old people to attend by offering free food. After the attendees signed in and the get together was over, the COALITION FOR MEDICARE CHOICES would gather up the names and addresses and send "letters" to congress begging congress to please not change the status quo of health care insurance!

Coincidence that this scam arrived in my mailbox only days after the Brian Baird townhall meeting in Ilwaco? I think not.

They must think we are ALL stupid.

BEWARE! The crooks are in your mailbox!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
