Here is an excerpt of our letter:
Congratulations on your introduction of an amendment in the nature of a substitute to H.R. 3962, the House Democrat government healthcare plan. Your plan doesn’t increase taxes, won’t saddle future generations with trillions in debt, and leaves the government out of the doctor-patient relationship.
In particular, I wanted to commend you for two aspects of the bill: letting families purchase health insurance across state lines, and the improvements made to health savings accounts (HSAs).
