Dear Mr. Obama ,
I think that when you made changes to Med- ical you should have made sure that us young people have coverage for eye glasses and contacts otherwise how else are we supposed to see to take care of our families.My Medi-cal covers my eye exams and my glaucoma care ,but not my eye glasses or contacts so that I can see to take care of my children.

Sincerely yours,
Denyce Christensen
