Scary" Healthcare Reform Facts Skewed

To The Editor:

I am writing in response to Ms. Schooley's letter regarding our president's "scary" healthcare reform published 7/31/09.

1. Only someone who is very highly vested in pharmaceuticals or insurance company stocks and securities could possibly have a motive for spending so much time and effort skewing facts and spewing outright lies about Obama's healthcare plan.

2. Do you also consider Social Security and Medicare to be a form of socialist government?

3. Due to greedy health insurance companies and people who thrive on scare tactics, my retirement savings are nearly gone, and I will soon be unable to afford the medications that keep me alive.

Let's talk about what is truly "scary!"
