Fundamental change needed to solve country’s problems

I am fed up with skyrocketing health care premiums that seem to have no end in sight, yet many of you are still not getting the care your families need.

With the election coming up, Ohio families will have a choice.

Obama is a leader who will end the divisive politics in Washington and finally pass health care legislation to give working Americans the relief we need. I think the choice is clear.

Obama has a plan to make health care affordable, portable and accessible to every American. Most importantly, if you like your current health care plan you can keep it and continue to see the doctor of your choice.

But for the millions who have no insurance, it will be an opportunity to get regular medical care and avoid major illnesses that are often treated in emergency rooms across the country and drive up everyone’s premiums.

This is the type of change we need in Washington, one that looks out for working families, not big corporations. Of all of the issues, McCain’s health care plan scares me the most.
