12 year old boy writes letter to Mitt Romney.
Here's his letter:
Dear Governor Romney,
I’d like to say congratulations on winning the republican nomination.
But, I wish you stayed in Massachusetts. You’re plan for America
isn’t what we need, and would hurt us more than it would help.
First, repealing Obama care and other health plans he’s put in place
have helped families across America, including mine. I live in a middle
class family, and two years ago my little sister; Kennedy was denied
insurance because of her pre-existing condition. This was a huge
emotional stress and financial burden on my entire family. Under Obama
Care, insurance companies can no longer deny Kennedy and kids like her,
the coverage they need and deserve. Because of Obama care my little
sister was able to have the several surgeries she needed that helped
save her life. Once the President was elected he put Obama Care into
action, just like he promised and made it so that you could get
insurance with pre-existing conditions. This has made a direct impact on
my family. My family is with out a doubt better off now, than we were
four years ago!
It is to my understanding that you stated that you were going to
repeal Obama Care, including the part I have mentioned, which will take
away the insurance we have and need for my sister Kennedy. Why do you
think she doesn’t deserve health care? Also, when you were interviewed
on “Meet the Press”, you stated that you would NOT repeal this part of
Obama Care, but then your campaign backpedalled and on the “Tonight show
with Jay Leno”, you said that you WOULD repeal this.
Also, you’re domestic plans (birth control, gay rights etc.) are
horrible! Women should get to manage their own health, and if you
wonder why you’re not appealing to many women voters, rethink your birth
control and women’s’ rights plans. And people should be able to marry
whom they want. We built this country so people could have freedom, and
not have religious beliefs control them to that length. This country
was in no way built on any religion, so we should not create laws that
repress the American people in a religious way and hurt our most
