The healthcare reform debate is becoming very ugly, even by Washington standards. Believe it or not, not all of our elected officials can be assumed to be pro-healthcare reform.
If you live in the Bay area and want to make a difference, letters to Senators Feinstein and Boxer would be a great help, along with one to your representative. I want to help you, so here's the deal.
Write your letter telling your story either about how healthcare coverage was difficult or impossible to afford for you or someone you know, or how someone you know lost coverage they really needed.
Then drop me an email and I'll come bring you a tiny box of truffles from Five Star truffles as a thank you. I would also love to hear your letter and your story, but if it's really personal you don't have to share it with me. I'm still happy to know you wrote a letter.
To find your elected officials, you can look them up at congress.org
And don't forget, there are chocolate truffles coming your way.
