While I agree with you, the truth is that the President has enough staff on hand to divide up the task of reading each letter. I think the point here
is that NOBODY reads them, not just that the President himself doesn't read them.
Then, instead of having the same form letter that doesn't even come close to addressing any of the initial concerns/comments, the very LEAST they
could do is divide up the letters into categories based on the most prevalent concern -- and create different form letters based on the concern.
It really wouldn't be that difficult or that taxing. Let's face it -- the majority of letters on healthcare are going to contain the same
components: cost, coverage, end of life rights, employer concerns, etc. There's probably a list of about 20 generalities that could be made to sum
up points of concern.
At least that way, despite receiving a form letter in return, you would at least know that someone read it in order to sort it into the right
category. While not ideal, at least someone will start getting the message.
And I would imagine that the person(s) responsible for reading them would quickly realize what the major source of opposition is (i.e. cost, etc.) and
share that with the President.
Just a thought.
I would at least feel better receiving a form letter that answered/addressed my concerns, rather than a blatant ad for healthcare reform, which in my
opinion is exactly all this letter is.
