To the Editor:
As Congress works to turn our economy around, reforming the health care system is one of the most important things we can do to ensure America's long-term economic strength.
There are many parts of our health care system that are the envy of the world, but the parts that aren't working threaten to bankrupt families, businesses and government alike.
We literally cannot afford to not address this challenge head-on.
As we move forward, our goal should be protecting what works and fixing what doesn't.
Only a uniquely American solution will fix the weaknesses in the current system and any solution must first start with an honest and open conversation.
I've always said we will never achieve real health care reform without giving all of the stakeholders in this debate a seat at the table.
That includes you.
Please take a minute to visit the 8th District Online Office and complete my health care survey at www.ellsworth.house.gov.
Your responses will provide valuable information and ideas as Congress considers reforming our health care system.
