LETTER: Health care reform needed now more than ever

How can we not afford to pass health care reform when a new federal study shows that health care spending is projected to double by 2019? If you know someone who has died because they could not afford the health care they needed or the insurance to help them obtain this care, it is only going to get worse. More families are going to find it impossible financially to get the care they need. I am behind President Obama and am calling on Congress to finish the job they have started.
