Dear Fellow American:
The U.S. Supreme Court’s (historic/activist) decision to uphold (the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare) is but a temporary (victory/setback) in our long fight (for access to health care/against government intrusion.)
The law that the Supreme Court upheld Thursday will mean that scores of (uninsured/reluctant) Americans will be (covered/forced) in a system that provides the kind of (care/costs) that the rest of the (civilized/socialistic) countries of the world already (enjoy/are saddled with).
(Unfortunately/Fortunately), the Supreme Court’s decision won’t be the last word on this (triumph/travesty) of justice. There are already (sinister forces/courageous voices) who are prepared to take this battle to Congress, which can (subvert/stop) the health care law through (vindictive/corrective) legislative action.
Can I count on you to stand with me to (protect/kill) this (noble/un-American) law?
The Supreme Court’s ruling just means that the stakes have never been higher for the November election. And I will need all the help I can get to fight the kind of money that (Karl Rove and the Koch brothers/George Soros and the Hollywood elite) will be shoveling to my opponent.
We didn’t get to be (a great nation/the greatest nation on Earth) by (turning our backs on/taxing) the people who could afford it the least.
Just the other day, I was talking with a hard-working (mom/small businessman) who told me that because of the health care law (her pre-existing medical condition/his minimal essential insurance requirements for workers) means that (she can’t be denied access to health insurance/he can’t afford to keep all his workers.)
It’s stories like this that make me want to fight (for/against) this law. But I can’t do it alone. I need your help. If you send me as little as ($3/$100) in the next 24 hours, you will receive one of my bumper stickers and be in the drawing for an autographed photo of (President Obama/President Reagan.)
If you can bundle contributions from your friends in the amount of ($100/$1,000) or more, I will be happy to come to your (home/country club), where we can further discuss the (beneficial/expensive) consequences of this law.Frank Cerabino writes for The Palm Beach Post.
