Nothing will change: HRC 43/100

9 September, 2016 | Index

Dear Hillary Clinton,

Gerard Mclean here, from Englewood, Ohio, just north of Dayton. There were 100 days from your nomination to election, so I’m writing you 100 letters. This is the forty-third letter. The others can be found in your USPS mailbox or online at

I recently had a conversation with someone on the election, who he thought would win and what would happen should each win. I’m not going to reveal who he thought would win, but he did share some thoughts on what would happen under each administration:

If your opponent wins, he believes America is in for a lot of social upheaval, perhaps even a war that will draw us into conflict for the next several generations.

If you win, he believes nothing will change.

My head knows that nothing will change, including the ACA. I will continue to see 20%+ increases in premiums as Congress will not be able to repeal the ACA nor will they allow SinglePayer. Again, nothing will change.

My heart still hopes he is wrong, which is why I write these letters.

We need UniversalCare, SinglePayer, MedicareForAll. This country may be able to afford the status quo, but individuals out here living day-to-day can not. We are going broke maintaining the status quo.
