To the Editor:
I believe the most important part of health care reform is getting health care for all American citizens. At the last meeting of our retiree club I was really upset at the members as they were spending so much time worrying that reform might cost them some money, and not enough time having some compassion for the men and women with no health care.
This is not the way we as union members should be thinking. Every year our medical goes up, and all of a sudden people want to defend our current system of health care? I believe in Obama as really wanting to make positive changes in our Government but what is so disappointing is that there is so much negative thinking about Obama among my fellow retirees.
