Dear Hillary Clinton,

Gerard Mclean here, from Englewood, Ohio, just north of Dayton. This is the seventy-second letter of one hundred I am writing you on health care; one for each day between your nomination and your election. The previous letters can be found in your USPS mailbox or online at 100HRC.com.

It is now almost mid-October and open enrollment is just around the corner. I have friends who are now getting their premium adjustment notices (mine comes in March, which has been problematic with the OOP year being Jan-Dec, but the plan being April-March… ask Anthem BC/BS of Ohio, they refused to adjust my calendar.)

Many are demoralized by the increases they are being asked to pay. Many are choosing to go without insurance and hope their health will last the last few years before they land into the Medicare end zone. Some are asking me for advice.

I have none and it breaks me heart. It breaks my head to know that I’m not alone in this frustrating fight that is willing to throw us overboard in favor of a few dollars.

We need SinglePayer, MedicareForAll, UniversalCare to stop the outflow of human spirit. Without hope, not only do we destroy the hope of an older generation, but the hope and trust of younger ones who are watching how their country treats its older citizens.

Regards,

Gerard McLean

100 Letters to Senator Hillary Clinton

From the nomination to the 2016 election, there are 100 days. I intend to write one letter each day to Hillary Clinton about Universal Health Care. She promised. (Please don’t leave private notes… they confuse me and hide issues that need to be aired!)
