Dear Representative DeLauro,
Dear Senator Dodd,
Dear Senator Lieberman,
As a writer for the Milford Daily Blog, and chairman of the Milford Independent Party Town Committee, I oppose government-run health care and the trillions of dollars in new taxes that will be confiscated from the people to pay for the legislation.
I also oppose employer and individual mandates, which force citizens and businesses into making decisions based on what the state wants, and not what makes the most sense for the individual or the small businessman.
Instead of crowding out the private insurers through a subsidized government option, Congress should vote for market-based reforms like allowing citizens of all states to purchase health insurance across state lines.
However, since you all already voted for this government-run health care legislation, and the trillions of dollars in new taxes that go with it. I am now counting on you to represent me and my family, and not encumber them with a nanny state ripe with the chaos and violence being initiated by the Federal Government and its confiscatory desperate actions.
Sadly there is too much violence in society, and when an American flew his plane into the IRS building this should have been a message to you that when people have nothing left to lose they lose it.
This bill in its present partisan form shows willful and callous disregard for the feelings of Americans and how they feel about the IRS and its draconian collection practices. Please do not draft legislation that scares Americans into surrendering what little money they have left to the private insurance industry. The use of fear and intimidation, may be the hallmark of the IRS but it certainly is not consistent with the vision of America's founders who fought for freedom from British tyranny.
It is my opinion that the surest way to spark more violence against yourselves and the country is to continue the antagonistic expansion of the IRS and police state of which this bill does by over 17,000 bully agents.
To Americas credit, and the Tea Party movement it appears that American's are refusing to live in fear of the government and I proudly stand with them angainst these kinds of bills and the civil injustice that will surely follow it.

P.S. Why is this not the same healthcare plan you have for yourselves and family?
