Letter to Paul Ryan

Mr. Ryan won't take an email from me, since I am in Demonrat Mark Pocan's district. His voice mail box is full, and has been for the last week. 

So, FAX:

Rep. Paul Ryan
U. S. Congress
FAX (202) 225-5117


Dear Speaker Ryan,

I have the misfortune to reside in Rep. Mark Pocan's district, so cannot email you.

I not that your phone mailbox is full. I can only assume that there is an overwhelming volume of calls concerning the promised GOP repeal of Obamacare.

Obamacare must be fully repealed - not 'fixed', not replaced. The federal government has no role in health care beyond enforcing laws prohibiting price fixing and monopolistic practices across state lines. That is what RICO and anti-trust laws are for.

Please. Do not insult our intelligence. Obamacare was an unmitigated disaster, and the proposed 'fix' does nothing to address the root cause of the cost of healthcare.

Look close to home - how can the CEO of a non-profit hospital group get paid over $8,000,000.00 per year, plus bonuses? Something stinks to high heaven here, and it has been rotting for decades.

Make history. Do something to actually FIX America's healthcare, and not just put lipstick on the pig.

President Trump has done many wonderful things in the short time he has been in office - but "replacing" Obamacare without actually doing anything to fix the underlying cause of high costs will go down in history as one of the greatest betrayals of all time, and will cost him a second term.

Do you really want Hillary Clinton - or worse - in 2020?


Chuck Kuecker

At least I would have sent this - if the FAX number was a working number.

Update - got through to one of his staffers at a different phone # - (202) 225-3031. FAX: (202) 225-3393.

His  voice mail box is still full...
