Dear Mr. Obama,
Stop trying to distract us with “health care reform” and bring the troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Stop trying to distract us with “health care reform” and enact programs to put us back to work. Stop trying to distract us with “health care Reform” that will put all of us under the thumbs of the insurance companies and start working on a single payer government run program like every other civilized democracy has.
