    Thank you, WFIU, for the recent excellent on-air health care reform discussion by three very knowledgeable people. They showed their ability to present their views without rancor or petty name-calling. It was truly an educational public service by the H-T and you, in the best media tradition. Mr. Zaltsberg, please consider printing a precis for your readers.

    Best wishes,
    Stan Shapiro

    Greetings … I am begging people to please recognize the propaganda blasted from the TV against HC reform. Please – VOTE YES and YES to the Public Option. Let me share why. Even as a professional I lost access to health insurance for over 1 year. My son is a waiter for a national restaurant chain but his insurance premiums consume all of his paycheck with NO money left for tax deductions. My daughter is divorced – a full time student with 4 kids. No income besides her student loan. The kids can get medicaid but she doesn't qualify. RIGHT!!! My younger son is on unemployment – maybe $200 a week. He can't afford COBRA. So guess what – he too is uninsured. Come on folks … it is criminal that in the in USA people don't have access to basic healthcare. A government option would cover them – provide competition to insurance giants through the country – and save taxpayor dollars. <nobody talks about who pays for the uninsured now when they get sick and are hospitalized>
