Obama Asks for Our Concerns Again

Another letter from Tom Daschle asks to hear our concerns. The more comments he hears, the more likely he is to listen.

Dear John,

Over the past two weeks, thousands of people representing all 50 states and every corner of the country have hosted health care discussions in their homes and communities. Just this week, I attended a discussion hosted by the Fire Department in Dublin, Indiana, and one hosted by a Senior Wellness Center in Southeast Washington, D.C.

Leading your discussion was the first step. Equally important, we want to hear back from you. I learned so much from attending discussions this week, and we want to know about your discussions, too.

The President-elect has asked me to share your feedback from these discussions -- that's why your submission is so essential.

Please tell us how your discussion went by visiting We need to hear from you as soon as possible -- by Sunday, January 4th, 2009 at the latest -- so we can prepare our report for the President-elect.

Both President-elect Obama and I are committed to reforming the health care system from the grassroots up -- and leaders like you are crucial to that effort.

I'm looking forward to reading your submissions about your Health Care Community Discussions.

Thank you,


Tom Daschle
Department of Health and Human Services

"He never used to feel pain until after we began chelating. He burned himself on an exposed heating pipe once and never flinched. He's never really been injured at all since he has incredible balance."

Ditto. You just described my granddaugher. I cannot figure this out.
