LETTER: Luetkemeyer should've voted for health care reform

On Nov. 7, a bipartisan majority of the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3962, The Affordable Health Care for America Act. Unfortunately, our representative Blaine Luetkemeyer was not one of the supporters.
I guess his background with the insurance industry is more powerful a force than that of his constituents who need access to affordable health care. Many of his physician constituents fear it may hurt the bottom line but realize that it is the right thing to do.
I hope our congressman will do what is right when he gets another opportunity to vote for health care reform.
