MEMBER DIARY

Halvorson: Call me if you need help dealing with bureaucrats.

I’ll help you as soon as I’m done helping ram through legislation that will put them in charge of 15% of the economy.

I wrote to Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson (D, IL-11) last year, urging her to vote against ObamaCare.   After she voted in favor of it, I had thought my email was a waste of my time.  However, if I hadn’t written to her, I wouldn’t have been placed on her email list, and I would have missed the opportunity to read this little gem:

Constituent Corner

How Congresswoman Halvorson is working for her constituents

Recently, a retired Plainfield couple visited Congresswoman Halvorson’s office because they were having an issue with Medicare. Medicare had not listed the couple as having their primary insurance under Medicare, but rather had their insurance listed under what the couple had when they were still working.

This caused problems when their doctors would try to bill Medicare, which would not pay their bills. Halvorson reached out to the Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS), the organization that administers Medicare programs, to advocate on behalf of the couple. After contacting CMS, Halvorson was able to ensure that their payments were received, and the couple now has Medicare as their primary care service. This saved the couple money and allowed them to be fully covered by Medicare.

If you or a family member needs assistance with any federal government agency, please contact my office at 815.726.4998.

Sincerely,

Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson

Her email acknowledges that the federal government was not responding to the needs of her constituents, requiring her personal intervention, and THIS IS A GOOD THING!?!?

If residents need to arrange a meeting with their Congressman to correct a billing problem with the Democrat’s shining example of government-run healthcare, why does she want to expand federal involvement?  It would make her constituents even more dependent on her to navigate through government red tape.

She wouldn’t want that, now, would she?
