Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
I’m a kindergarten teacher in Manteca, and my responsibility to my students and their families goes beyond the classroom. Their health is just as important as their education, and the health care bill that Congressman Jeff Denham helped pass will hurt my students and their families.
Many of our students have insurance because of the Affordable Care Act. They have pre-existing conditions like asthma, diabetes and birth defects and they won’t have coverage under Denham’s plan. When sick kids can’t get health care everyone in the community is less healthy.
There are a lot of people in the community unhappy with his follow through and the stance he’s taking on issues that are very important to families here, and we vote.
