LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Wishful thinking


I would like to state that I alongside my husband worked many years paying into Social Security, supporting our family, educating our kids and paying taxes. Why, Mr. Tilly, do you think we deserve to sit down, die and hand over what we worked for to illegals and lazy people who are waiting on their next handout? 

I would like to know how long it has been since you entered the door of a cancer center? Let me assure you that you are not guaranteed the devastating curse will not affect you or a loved one! It is not a diagnosis that you want or one to see inflicted on a family member, friend or acquaintance. Never in my lifetime did I think it would affect me – but guess what? It did!

Mr. Tilly, I want you to know that my loved ones and I believe wholeheartedly that I have earned the right to the best doctors, nurses, facilities and treatments that your Mr. Obama thinks he deserves. Am I not correct in understanding that these new changes will not be good enough for him and his family?

Are you aware that because I am a cancer patient that his followers – and I include you in this statement – believe that I am done? Explain to my family, please, that because I have cancer that I should give up and let the monster consume my life. 

Let me ask you, and I quote you, “third world countries have a superior system to ours,” why do those people want to leave their “good life” to come here and take from our hard-working people? Which of those countries would give you anything free?

Your Affordable Healthcare Law that you consider so great does not cover every American as you stated, but you seem to think it will be OK to put some elderly residents out of Medicaid funded nursing homes and onto the streets. Did you not ever once think that misfortune could come your way and find yourself in the same situation?
