Your damn emails… again: 93/100

29 October, 2016 | Index

Dear Hillary Clinton,

Gerard Mclean here, from Englewood, Ohio, about ten miles north of Dayton. This is the ninety-third 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

Yesterday’s news was a bit of an unpleasant surprise, but it still doesn’t change this fundamental assertion:

Nobody cares about your damn emails!

What we really do care about is quality, available and affordable health care for all Americans and residents in the United States of America. I suspect, though, that if Congressman Chafftz’s reaction and response was any indication of how he will conduct the House of Representatives during your administration, we will not be seeing any forward movement on the desperately needed services we are all paying for through our taxes.

That is exceedingly sad. It delays the American Dream not only for my generation, but for one to two generations coming up.

The Republicans may indeed be acting in earnest, I can’t know what’s in their hearts. But I can assess the outcomes of their actions. These actions are dangerously reckless, derelict and grossly negligent.

We need SinglePayer, MedicareForAll, UniversalCare. When the citizen body has little to nothing left to lose, we will find a way to affect change without the help of Congress. Of that, I have little doubt.
