Dennis Pierce has had his chance to respond to the feedback from his advertisement ("Critics of ad repeat misconceptions," Letters, Herald, Sept. 11).
The way I see it, he will always miss the point of the other side of this issue. He starts off his comments with the overused talk-radio label, "Obama Care." Now that is the kind of guy that is really going to put together an unbiased survey of "concerned citizens and health-care professionals" Perhaps he could share with us how this "vetted survey" took place?
I see that draft copies were sent to "a number of doctors" before they placed the ad. I am sure he knew whom he was sending the draft copies to and how they would respond.
As for the health insurance industry helping place the ad, with friends like this, why help?
I can't say that Sens. Bennet and Udall have read House Resolution 3200, however I suspect they have had their staff pretty heavily involved in reading it. I don't have a copy of HR 3200 on my desk, but I do have a PDF file of it on my computer.
There is no question that HR 3200 has flaws, every partisan bill does. But Pierce forgets that his "team" had a chance at this. They chose to spend the money on a trumped up war in Iraq.
Finally, he tells us that the World Health Organization statistics have been debunked in The Wall Street Journal and New York Times. It's funny, Rupert Murdoch owns The Wall Street Journal, I think. Other than that, I really can't find anything that significantly changes my opinion about the WHO.
