It is time that I let everyone know why I became involved in the Tea Party Movement and why it is so very important that Americans stand up against health-care reform. Joan Smith said it was ?unfortunate that groups like the Glendale Patriots are trying to obscure what is actually in the health-care reform legislation? (?Group protests health-care plan,? July 25). She went further on to say, ?Thank goodness Schiff is standing up for meaningful health-care reform.? Before this last election, I was a Democrat and always voted for Rep. Adam Schiff.

In tough times, parents find it harder than ever to make sure their children have everything they need for school. Luckily, the most important school supply of all is free. It’s a library card. This card can give kids access to free homework help, research materials or a source for their next book report in Burbank. It can also fill in their free time, with free access to music, DVDs, the Internet, books and more. Library cards aren’t just for kids. Now more than ever, people of all ages are turning to their libraries for reliable information from reference librarians, financial information, free computer, Internet access and, of course, books, movies, magazines and more.

Glendale is known as a tree city and has been for many years. I live in the Rossmoyne area and am happy that the city has taken the money and effort to plant trees where they are missing or could enhance the streetscape. Trees add to the quality of life and quality of the very air that we breathe. I was amazed at the lack of knowledge of Gary Huerta, who wrote of his learning experience of what he owns and what the city owns (“Take your trees back, Glendale,” Feb. 9)

It is difficult in this economy for those of us struggling simply to put food on the table to focus on much else. Our economy is complex and is defined by more than just business. So many things determine how the economy is doing. That is why the president has been trying to secure our economic future by encouraging more people to go to college by making it more affordable, giving the largest tax cuts to the middle class we have seen in a long time; is trying to put more money into small community banks to increase loans to small businesses and entrepreneurs, to invest in new energy jobs; and yes, has tried to solve the problem of rising health-care costs.

In response to Robert Buniatyan’s March 26 letter, “Bill takes away freedoms,” he writes, “nowhere in the Constitution is insurance mentioned as a right.” The Constitution doesn’t mention health insurance because it grants us greater rights and powers. Health insurance reform helps us fulfill these major constitutional goals: establish a more just America, promote our general welfare, insure tranquillity and secure our liberty. Buniatyan speculates the law will make insurance more expensive.

Area congressmen are getting heat from lobbyists on both sides of the national debate on health-care reform as the representatives arrive back in their districts for their August recess. Rep. David Dreier, who opposes the nearly $1-trillion plan in the House of Representatives that includes a public health insurance option, is one of 25 Republicans being targeted in a national ad campaign by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which supports the House proposals. Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who has said he would be hesitant to vote for a health-care-reform plan that did not include a public option, is in the crosshairs of a lobbying effort by fiscally conservative group Americans for Limited Government.
