Dear resipient,
I would like to congratulate you on ur outstanding conduct in creating
the new health care bill. without your help there would be a rapid increase in the mortalities in America. This bill will decrease the population of corpulent Americans in this great nation. I concur that the way you and President Obama prosecuted that bill will forever be in the history books for being one of the greatest transgresses in 2010. I hope that we can expedite this bill effenciently and I hope we will work again sometime in the near future.
