For our wellness

This country sits on the brink of drastic change as President Barack Obama prepares to inform the nation of his recommendations on health care reform.

Although many agree that the U.S. health care system is broken and in need of reform, the proposed changes will be novel ideas, and it is imperative for the public to be fully aware of the details.

It is extremely important for people to tune in on the evening of June 24 on the ABC network to hear the president’s proposals. This piece of legislation will directly and substantially impact every citizen in the United States, from the CEO of a Fortune 500 company to a retired senior citizen living on a fixed income.

People should be well informed and be ready and willing to express their opinions concerning the topic. We are all fortunate to live in a country where we have the right to peaceably assemble and have elected officials represent us within our government.

Remember to contact your representatives and voice your opinion, whether you support the proposed health care reform policies or not, as they are poised to affect our future health and wellness.
