In recent years America has seen the price of health care rise at an alarming rate, while the number of uninsured and underinsured has continued to rise as well. In Utah we are not immune for these problems with an uninsured rate of fifteen percent and a child uninsured rate of thirteen percent. President Obama has said that health care reform is crucial to the success of the economy and the country. In order to solve this problem COMPREHENSIVE health care reform must take place. This petition is to show our Utah Representatives to Congress that we, in Utah, want to see this health care reform take place. President Obama has asked health care reform legislation be on his desk to sign in October. By signing this petition we are saying that reform is important to Utah’s citizens and need to be supported by our Representatives before the October deadline. Thank you for your support.

Dear Friends, I am writing to you today to ask for your support. I have started a petition to give to the Senators and Congressmen of Utah, asking for their support in comprehensive health care reform. I am not asking you to support universal or socialized medicine. What I am asking you to do is support the reform of a broken system, a system that has left millions without care. People like my mother who until she was able to get on Medicare did not have health insurance and could not afford or qualify of coverage under the current system. If you believe that it is a right that all men/women are born equal and that all men/women have the same rights. Then I encourage you to stand with me in supporting right for every American to have Health Care. If you don’t agree with me that is fine I still count you as a friend and I thank you for your time.
