Letter to Dick Morrison

After viewing this segment on The O'Reilly Factor, I had to write Dick Morris a letter explaining why I objected to his distortions of the health care debate. It is because of people like him and O'Reilly that spout propaganda that health care remains such a distorted and misunderstood subject in American society. Here is Obama's former physician in Chicago, Dr. David Scheiner, and Amy Goodman speaking the truth about the state of health care in this county.

Here is the letter I wrote:

I would really appreciate it if you actually used some common sense and stop distorting the facts around the health care debate. Obama and the Dems bill is not perfect, far from it. The main factor hindering health care reform is the insurance industry that has a highly effective public relations campaign. I mean look at all the pharmaceutical drugs they put out each year, and most of the stuff is addicting and gets abused by the very people it is supposed to help. This is one aspect of this very complex issue. There are many problems with our health care system, and the biggest one of them all is the private health care industry that blocks reform by getting people like you to scare impressionable people into believing all the lies and distortions that come out of Fox News. We already have socialized medicine in this country. The VA system, all federal, state, and local employees, Medicare, and Medicaid are perfect examples. Why not universal Medicare, which practically every other country in the world has?
