McKeon only references portion of constituents

In Thursday’s edition of The Signal (“McKeon rails against proposed health bill,” March 18) my Congressman (Howard “Buck” McKeon) said “(My constituents) don’t want government to take over health care, for the government to come between them and their doctors.”

The use of the phrase “my constituents” by McKeon really is a misrepresentation of what all of the people in our community may think.  
When McKeon says “my constituents,” I guess he doesn’t consider that there are opposing views in this community. I wonder how many opposing views he has received.

McKeon says he doesn’t want the government to take over health care. I suppose he must condone the way insurance companies cherry-pick patients and put profit ahead of anything else.  

He says he doesn’t want the government to come between patients and their doctors. However, it’s fine for insurance bureaucrats to come between patients and doctors.

While the health bill isn’t what I would want, it is a step toward something that is standard in the other nations of the world.
