The Health Care war is ON in North County

A call to arms for North County
INSIGHTS - By Joe Howard Crews

Aug. 21, 2007

Reps. Darrell Issa and Brian Bilbray voted to exclude millions of kids from children’s health care as their final despicable act in Congress before coming home for August vacation. Almost 9 out of 10 voters in North County approve of this program, SCHIP. As his first act upon returning to North County, Bilbray rushed his article to the NC Times rationalizing why these kids do not deserve health coverage.

Yours truly, Joe Crews, editor of the Progressive Post submitted an article taking Issa to task for his vote. A few days later Issa responded, with the following article article of his own in the NC Times. That same day, the splendid column by Gail Chatfield (COLUMN) appeared alongside Issa’s piece.

The War is on !

Do not let Issa and Bilbray get away with this. Write to the NC Times yourself and give them a piece of your mind. They must be made to feel the heat on this issue. They are reading the NC Times. Your letters are getting to them.

A call to arms:
No one has yet answered Bilbray’s piece of crap. Is there a loyal Busby writer in the 50th District who believes in the issue of Children’s Health Care? Then sit down today and write a Community Forum to the NC Times (500 words maximum). Spill out your heart and let’s change this deplorable state of health care for our kids. Send it to

Thank you,
Joe Howard Crews
