Interesting organized email campaign

November 10, 2009 - Frank Robinson
I have been receiving some interesting emails regarding the passage by the House of the bill reforming health care. This is not the first time an organization has tried this. We see it usually during heated political seasons. Most of these are thanking Charlie Wilson and Tim Ryan for their votes. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with it, just that it's interesting. They basically are just fill-in-the-blank form letters.

Here are a few samples. I have replaced their addresses and phone numbers:

I am so very proud that on November 7th, the House of Representatives couragely passed the Affordable Health Care for America Act. I have always been one of the blessed who have great health coverage provided by my emplyer. But I cannot sit back in my cofortable position and not think of the many,many, American's who are not as well covered or who have no coverage at all.. It is our duty as American citizens to see that all of our fellow citizens have the ability to be able to get medical attention when they need it. That is why we have a goverenment. It is to protect us and not just with guns and tanks as many citizens think. I consider myself very blessed to be a citizen of this great country and will gladly pay my taxes every year with pride so that this country can remain the best in the world. A great big thank you to all those representatives that passed this bill dispite the pressure that was places upon them by certain interest groups. These brave representatives truly stood up for the constituents with their vote. I suggest that the other who did not vote for this bill will now have the courage to stand up for the majority of their constituents and vote to pass this bill It is the right thing to do. Sincerely, Shirley A. Eckley

I Changed my mind after long thought. This Health Care Plan is a big mistake. I am also cutting up and canceling AARP after 10 years.

BIG MISTAKE AND THIS IS WRONG - LEAVE HEALTHH CAR E ALONE OR SLOW DOWN AND LETS TAKE MORE TIME.
