An Open Letter and Plea to President Barack Obama: Who Should Have A Vote?
By Harold Bell
During your State of the Union Address you made a plea to Congress that Gabby Gifford and Newtown should have a vote as it relates to gun control in America.
Mr. President, I totally agree the time has come to reduce gun violence in America– it is long overdue.
The vote that you proposed should not stop there, senior citizens living in nursing homes in America should also have a vote. The abuse taking place in nursing homes across this nation is appalling. This is a National Crisis. The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Fox News, and ABC News have all echoed the same reports. During your State of the Union Address I did not hear you cry out to give senior citizens a vote!
My question to you and the Congress of the United States is: What is the difference in the gun violence and the nursing home violence taking place in this country?
