Thank you, Governor Parnell, for having enough spine to have Alaska join the effort to repeal that ill-conceived Health Care travesty that was finally shoe-horned through Congress last month. My wife and I both worked our entire adult lives and paid our insurance premiums all those years and loved the coverage we had. But when we reached our 60's we were forced, by Government fiat, to go on Medicare and lose the insurance that we had relied on for years. Unfortunately, both of our primary care physicians have retired since, and with the smaller payments Medicare makes to doctors, we have had the Devil's own time finding any doctors that will add us to their patient lists. Now comes the new Government health care, which breaks the promises made to Senior Citizens, with even less money dedicated to Medicare coverage, and even lower payments to doctors, which further hinders our problems finding primary doctors. How did Americans ever allow ourselves to get into such a mess?
I've gone through my life never protesting anything, but if someone will give us the phone number of the nearest tea party organization, we'd like to sign up!
