  1. To whom this may concern ; I am interested in having my voice heard regarding issues on Health Care Reorm for Disabeled citizens. I am often amazed at how legilators forget (convienantly) that Disabeled persons were every day non-disabled citzens prior to becoming disabled.
    I speak for my self when I say the 20 years I spent in middle management working , paying taxes , being an able bodied citizen will not be looked over, dismissed !!! Please let me know when and how to be a part of this meeting. My computer does not show me telepictures so please tell how to be involved.
    Thank You Mr. Phillip Perini
