Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. Writes Back.- Joins Effort

Dear Mrs. Manire:

Thank you for contacting me regarding your support of H.R. 1783, The Elder Justice Act. I appreciate hearing your views on this legislation.

As you may know, Congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL-5) introduced H.R. 1783 on March 29, 2007. If passed, H.R. 1783 would amend the Social Security Act to enhance the public-private entities' ability to prevent, detect, intervene in, and prosecute elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

I strongly agree that the generations before us must be provided safety and security in their latter years. We must dramatically reduce the abuse and neglect that is suffered by our seniors. H.R. 1783 has been referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. As a member of this committee, I will keep your views in mind should it be brought before the committee for consideration.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me. I appreciate having the opportunity to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives. Please feel free to visit my website ( or contact me with any future concerns.

Sincerely,Michael C. Burgess, M.D.Member of Congress


Now that our voices are being heard, now that we are being noticed, now that our collective pain is being felt, Now that there are brave young men dying for our right to say so !

This is NO time to let up.

If only for selfish reasons, we all ought to care about fighting elder abuse — because one day, if we live long enough, it might just happen to us.
It is time to 2x our efforts, you can find the letters that Mrs Manire sent
