I read Matthew Barry's letter (see "Shoved down," Sept. 3, 2009) regarding Obama, the FED and Healthcare with great interest and wanted to let him know I am in complete agreement with him. How dare this president and government try to "shove down" my throat a plan that would see to it, whether it's broken or not, that I get adequate health care. How dare they contrive a plan (I prefer to call it a plot) that would guarantee I won't lose my home if I or members of my family ever do suffer a catastrophic illness. I and Matthew demand a government that stays the hell out of our affairs and protects our right to die homeless and penniless. Right on Matthew, I'm behind you all the way. Who says all the "thinkin' men" are gone?
