08/17/09 The Himes Times: Health care



August 17, 2009

Friends,


As you have no doubt noticed, health care reform has become THE topic in Washington, in the media, and across the country. And rightly so. The status quo is no longer tenable. It is an economic and moral disaster.

Yes, the rhetoric has been heated, and it has been disheartening to see that around the country efforts have been made to squelch discussion rather than promote it. I am happy to say that in my district when I held an
impromptu town hall meeting with some 75 people in Stamford, people were thoughtful, considerate, and generally measured.

This is an immensely complicated topic, and probably the most substantial legislative initiative in which any of us will play a part.

Recently, I published an op-ed in the
Connecticut Post, Stamford Advocate, and Greenwich Time detailing my current views on the proposed reforms. I hope you will take a look and let me know what you think.

All the best,


Jim

08/17/09 READER SUBMITTED COMMENTS: Failed MTA Metro-North President Howard Permut That....


This is a point you should follow up. Howard thinks in terms of the
20th Century, not the 21st.

At the last MTA Board meeting I strongly suggested Howard retire. I
will again at the Metro North Committee meeting next month. You can
see me on the MTA Board web Archive of the meeting (July 2009).

A copy of this email is going to Howard. That's his email address.
And a BCC is going to two people, one of whom (I hope) will forward a
copy of this email to the Board and Ms. Williams.

Replace Permut and you go a long way to fixing MN. Howard is in over
his head.

Murray Bodin
