Letter to Senator Nelson (D-Nebraska, pop: 1,783,432)

Dear Senator Nelson,

It disappoints me greatly that you are obstructing the pending health care bill in an effort to reduce reproductive freedom for women.

Many people in Nebraska and elsewhere in the US have no access to health care. The pending bill will finally address this injustice, as well as the myriad other well known problems with the U.S. health care system (such as spiraling costs and ineffective allocation of resources.) We've waited for so long, and change is finally at hand. Please don't stand in the way of progress.

If you continue to obstruct passage of this bill, or you manage to tack on provisions that effectively deny poor women the right to choose, I give you my word that I will contribute at least $500 to your opponent in 2012. I don't mean this as a threat, just an indication of how important this is to me.

thank you for your time

Amar Pai
