Find health-care solution for all
Rick Olson in the Evansville Courier Press
I am very concerned about the cost and coverage of healthcare in this country.
We need a solution that covers all Americans, not just the ones fortunate to be able to afford it and the ones that don’t get sick.
The best solution is one that takes the insurance and pharmaceutical companies out of the equation and gives the power of negotiating prices for all medical costs to one entity. The best solution is a single payer system which can be called Medicare for all.
Please reject the recently passed legislation in the House and pass legislation that ensures that all Americans are covered. The worst solution is to take away coverage from millions of people and give a huge tax break to the wealthy. Please help protect everyone with pre existing conditions and ensure that everyone is covered for reasonable premiums which can be achieved through a single payer system like Medicare. Even Charlie Munger believes that the best solution is a single payer system!
