To the editor:
The people of Illinois would really appreciate the opportunity to
hear Sen. Dick Durbin, our elected senator, explain what the Obama
health care reform plan is all about, to ask the questions many of
us have about it, and to hear his explanations to our questions.
By not providing his constituents this explanation,
question-and-answer opportunity, it makes many of us feel like the
Obama administration is trying to force a plan on the American
people that perhaps may not be the most beneficial to the majority
of us American taxpayers, especially for older people, people with
existing health problems or for those with health problems in the
Does this plan include the president, senators, representatives,
their families and others in government positions, or is it just for
"the rest of us Americans"? And if so, what is wrong with the plan
that it is not good enough for everyone? Would he want his family
and relatives to be covered by the Obama plan?
I hope he will hold needed public town hall meetings all over
Illinois to let his constituents ask our questions and hear his
answers in order to put our minds at rest, once and for all, about
the Obama health care reform plan.
I pray that each member of the Obama administration will ask God
to guide them in making their decisions, as these decisions will
affect the American people for years to come.
