Letter to the Gazette Times

December 20, 2013
How many hours of effort and how many millions of dollars have gone into the benighted healthcare insurance exchanges? This whole unproductive farce could have been avoided if our elected representatives had been willing to skip the insurance companies and put our country’s efforts into building a single-payer healthcare system that has healthcare for everyone regardless of age or employment or military service.
Other countries have healthcare for everyone at lower cost than ours. Visitors to this country are appalled at our crazy, inefficient system. It is time to change.
