Request for CLARIFICATION and Bill Introduction: DATE: 4-13-2019
FROM: Susan Marie [CassAdy]-Neuhart, USA Citizen [Ohio-10]
California Senator & Candidate Kamala Harris AND her Staff: ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) :: ( email@example.com ) ::
SUBJECT: Request for Policy Clarification
Dear Senator Harris ( Kamala ),
My name is Susan [Cassady]-Neuhart.
I am seeking a “clarification” on your "policy" - related to USA Health Care.
THIS IS AN “OPEN-Letter” COMMUNICATION & REQUEST : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_letter
E.G. [That is] I will post this request (letter/Email) onto my “personal” web site. 
If my request – is granted – [then] Your "clarification" - should be prepared in writing- AND, emailed to me: [As shown in this Email’s header.
Please be mindful, [that] I have a "personal" web site; AND, please provide me with permission to POST your written reply
- to my "personal" web site – within your reply.  You may use my CONTACT form – if that is most convenient…
I am NOT seeking employment - of any kind. Nor, do I consider myself a volunteer OR representative – of Your policies;
Until, I hear from you – or, your authorized agents. 
All, that I promise (herein) – is [that] I will post your reply – to my “personal” web site.
I was Born in Columbus, Ohio - year 1956 - I am retired - and financially “comfortable”.
My husband – younger than me – still works. I now live in Ohio, Congressional District 10. 
As you may know, the Honorable Mike Turner (Republican) is my Congressional Representative. 
My web site hosts a page "ABOUT" me - if you want to learn more detailed information. 
And, I have started a PAGE – dedicated to you. http://hansandcassady.org/Kamala_Harris.html
I am a registered Democrat. I vote – and, I attempt to persuade others.
Photos (of me) - and my "biological" family members appear on my "personal" web site. It may appear (from these photos) that I am a Caucasian person - but I do not state so. So, I will state here: As far as I know - I am Caucasian human being. I have always identified - as a “Caucasian" person. However, circa 1982, I did request of my [then, very ill mother] - "…Please tell me of my Grandmother [the] 'Zora Elizabeth [Miller]-Sprouse-Roby' - and, my ‘German’ heritage".
A bit alarmed, she stated emphatically: "I did not raise you kids - to be 'German'. I raised you to be 'Irish'. Your Daddy is Irish!"
Ms. Harris, I realize [that] your mother was born in India; I “googled” her. WE are very lucky – to have had her want to be – an American. I am certain, [that] she was “very proud” of you AND Maya. I also realize [that] your father was born in Jamaica. Again, this gives you a unique perspective.
Senator Harris, as you may know - or, could easily determine (through "Googling") – not very many people (in Ireland) have the surname "C-a-s-s-A-d-y"; However, many people - in Scotland do have the sur-name "C-a-s-s-A-d-y". Thus, my actual “race/ethnicity" (Scottish, German or Irish) is uncertain.
Obviously, I "grew up" during the time of Aretha Franklin and Martin Luther King. I attended Inner-city Columbus [Ohio] Public Schools [1960 - 1972]. My “oral” class “book report” – in 1968 (we all had to prepare and give them)– was on John Howard Griffin’s “Black Like Me”. Today, I am “liberal” and “progressive” (in my votes and thinking) - AND, I support all of the 2016 Democratic Platform. At this writing, former USA President Obama - is my "Commander-In-Chief"!
I am aware of the "53% problem"  - as it is posited by “The Atlantic Magazine media organization – and today’s “feminists” . Before my “retirement” – I was a Software Technical Writer – all over the USA. Clearly, I have lived the “feminist” movement – [that] many people write about.
I did vote "FOR" Ms. Clinton (in 2016); However - having personally suffered a stroke (in 2012) - I was not pleased - in the manner [that] she handled the mere"suggestion" [that] she did have a stroke. Please consider, she seemed (to me) "fearful" - at the very time - [that] I was "recovering” – from a stroke. [With the help of Michelle Obama's ["Let's Move" program]. 
Today (2019), most people - unless, I tell them - have no idea [that] I ever did suffer an SAH-MCA event . I still bear the scars of the emergency “full craniotomy surgery procedure” - that was required to save my life. Neuro surgeon, Victor Perry (now with offices in Fresno, California) did save my life - in Asheville, North Carolina – December 18, 2012.  Doctor Perry was ‘on-duty’ in the Hospital – that received my “Life-Flight” helicopter.
Senator Harris, I was very impressed [that] you declared (on CNN) " ... let's get rid of all that" -"Let's Move ON ..." - related to a "Health CARE" question. 
However, in fact, you stated this reply (to a CNN News reporter)- many months after - I had designed my draft Bill - for American Health Care - AND, sent it to ALL of my elected "representatives": Ohio Senators Sherrod Brown & Rob Porter; Congressman Mike Turner - and USA President Donald Trump. 
Nonetheless, I cheered (Out Loud!) - for You! So, did my husband - of 37+ years (Hans). Thus, we were "crestfallen" when Mr. Ian Sams (of your Campaign) offered a subsequent "clarification" - of your position [which] seemed to “backtrack”. 
We presume [that] Mr. Sams did this - with your permission. However, even the "best employees" - with good intentions - can “overstep” their authority; Or, perhaps he was frightened? 
We are aware - of the "out-cry" which occurred - over your CNN “town hall” declaration. 
You should be aware - [that] I have done considerable "research" - on the issue of USA Health Care Policy. And, I mean, several thousand hours - of reading, writing and web-page development.
As well as living - the nightmare of losing our "single-family" home - due to the subsequent medical "bills" from my “unplanned” SAH-MCA stroke event; My "personal" web site documents [some] of the reading and research - that, I have done. I designed my "draft" Health CARE Bill - after performing much of my research.
In addition to your “clarification”, I am seeking a "Champion" – to acknowledge and ultimately “deliver” my "draft" Health CARE Bill into the halls of Congress - and, begin the formal process of making my “draft” design USA law.
My web site "documents" my supporting arguments. 
I realize, that my “champion” must agree with my fundamental sentiments. I am prepared to “work with” your professional staff.
Again, I was a “professional writer” – prior to my retirement. I have also attended Law School.
In fact, your Democratic colleagues - have recently supplied me with another argument:  They stated - [that] "Health CARE Insurance” -related services represents about ONE Trillion dollars of our annual USA economy.
However, "Health CARE" - as I specifically propose (in my "draft" Bill) – it [the design] should be done - would cost MUCH LESS:
“… Consider, IF (the) 209,000 currently licensed MDs - were each paid an annual salary [by the USA Federal Government] of $150,000 USD - this would equal merely $ 31, 350,000,000 per year :: In English WORDS, (this is) Thirty one billion, three hundred and fifty million US dollars ...” 
Thus, there would be $68+ BILLION (of the ONE Trillion) – immediately left to spend – on: hospitals, facilities, more Medical Schools, etcetera.
And, MY proposed Health CARE system would cover every American citizen – from “their Cradle to their Grave”.
In short: the "profit motive" - MUST be separated - from the provision of "Health CARE services" - by licensed [USMLER] Medical Professionals. AND, the sale of Medical Insurance - in any form - must be made illegal.
Specifically, Mr. Sanders Bill – [S. 1408] (OR, as shown even in his "new Bill", still containing SEC 107 - Related to "non-duplication" - is NO GOOD!!
As I state on my “personal” web site , providing such a legal language "loop-hole" - within enacted USA Health CARE Law - is an invitation - for a "two-tier system".
That is, Mr. Sanders’ …"non-duplication" [legal clause] will give rise to: "Health CARE" for "poor" people - AND, "Health CARE" for "rich" people.
In fact, during my 65 years, I have literally lived in both worlds. Specifically:
- I was raised in the "poor part" of Columbus, Ohio. – an area called "the bottoms". My father [Milo Gerald CassAdy] owned and operated a "general contracting" business.
- Due to circumstances (also documented on my “personal” web site), after my high school graduation, I went on to earn a BS - in " Environmental Science & Communications" - from UWGB.
You see, in 1968, it was discovered [although a "female"] - I “liked” Computers (such as they were) AND also – had an aptitude – for “programming” them. Thus, (and, also because in of "Affirmative Action" ) - I enjoyed very "well-paid" work - with several major USA "high-tech" companies – upon my “graduation” – in 1982.
I was a “employee” participant in the “DOT-Com” bubble . My husband (Hans Neuhart) is a well-known Medical & Scientific Digital Illustrator. WE created a very successful “small-business” - located in Westerville, Ohio (in the 1980s). We had several “employees”. Our success was made possible by the evolution of [the] Apple Computer. Hans was very talented at “digital drawing” – AND, we literally assisted the “automation” of the USA College Textbook Industry.
Senator, I know [that] those "things" [that] I have personally "experienced" (as both: a "rich-successful" American; AND, [also] a member - of a financially challenged ("white family") – in urban America; will happen [again] - if, we cannot learn from our history. That is, [the] “non-duplicated” legalese in Mr. Sanders’ Bill – will lead to a “two-tier” result.
Finally, I am aware, [that] you speak (publically) of your mother’s illness and passing. My father (born in 1902) was one of the first Americans to die - from Mesothelioma (in 1964). I was ten years old. Several – of my six siblings – were still “living at home”. My mother suffered from "heart disease" - due to her genetics – and, she became "diabetic" - from a "broken heart" – after 30 years of marriage – and, the early death – of the man she loved. I became pregnant as a teen-ager. I say – with pride – [that] not one of the seven children my mother raised – has ever been in serious trouble – with the law.
I know – WE ALL KNOW!  - [that] "separate" is never equal - AND, to create the conditions - and, "incentivize" [these conditions] - to come about - through "non-duplication" language (in a Federal Health Bill) - Like Senator Bernie Sanders does [in his Health CARE proposal 'SEC 107' - is just stupid. It is also “suspicious”.
Moreover, Bernie Sander’s "pussyfooting" - with the "USA Health Insurance Industry" - is obvious. And, he needs to be “called out” – for doing it.
Senator, I am well aware - of WHAT the AMA did to Mr. Truman's “ Health Care Bill” - and Mr. Truman - in 1945.  In fact, THEY (the AMA) called one of our greatest USA Presidents a "Communist". 
Thus clearly, the ideas - as presented in my draft Bill - will similarly dislocate - and frighten many people - in 2019 AND 2020. The vested interests will "fight" .
However, I believe [that] this is a "fight' - whose Time Has Come.
If, YOU want to “lead the fight” - I will help You - as, I am able to.
Also, being courageous enough to lead this good "fight" - will certainly “distinguish You” - from the other "contenders" - who also seek to be our USA President - in 2020.
Respectfully, - Susan
