John Hall represents our interests

    Millions of dollars are spent every year to pay for expensive emergency room visits by the uninsured. By providing affordable health coverage, we can lower health care expenses and reduce a significant amount of chronic and catastrophic illnesses because patients can be seen regularly in doctors’ offices. Also, many Americans are benefitting as the “doughnut hole” is being phased out, insurance companies can no longer deny insurance because of preexisting conditions, and students can stay on their parents’ health plans until they are twenty-six. Many big banks and investment firms are spending millions to hire lobbyists to dilute the new financial reform law. This law demands that banks have enough money on hand to secure their loans and investments. Also, big institutions will be allowed to fail without taxpayers paying the freight. A new consumer protection agency will enforce fairness in the marketplace. I am supporting John Hall for Congress. We can choose “free market” lawlessness which nearly caused another Depression or we can move forward by sending John Hall back to Congress to continue representing our interests.
