Altmire failing us

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

Congressman Jason Altmire, why are you delaying our health care?

I'm not angry with you, but I am disappointed. First, we have lost Aliquippa Hospital, so now we have to go farther for emergency care and are missing out on the economic advantages a hospital provides to our region. Second, you are part of the Blue Dog faction of the Democratic Party and are playing politics, grabbing corporate dollars that are slowing down health-care reform and potentially killing a bill that can help so many of your constituents who do not have health care.

Going to the emergency room is not health care. And, we don't have that advantage. Aliquippa Hospital is no more. Rep. Altmire, you can do better.
