Thanks for reform article

I am writing to say thank you for the article in the Sept. 15 Spokesman-Review that states that those people who are on Medicare do not need to apply for the new health exchange. I have seen previous articles that did not state that. I was concerned that I would have to do that.

Thank you again for the article. I hope that people saw it and were relieved to know that they didn’t have to worry.
