My letter to the president

(No, I don't expect an answer. The book I mention is the best book I have ever read on the issue; there is nothing about killing granny in it, if you were curious).

Dear Mr.President,

I'm a registered independent who is politically moderate. I am not interested in partisan bickering. I just want solutions that work. About a month ago, I heard you say, in response to that Republican Senator who said he wants to "break you," that this debate wasn't about you. You said that you have a great insurance. That got me thinking. About a year ago I read Healthcare Guaranteed by Ezekiel Emanuel, whom I believe is one of your advisers. Why can't we do what he suggests—give every American a voucher for the plan Congress and you have? Insurance companies would not be allowed to exclude people based on preexisting conditions.
