Here is a letter I recently sent to the Midland Daily News:
Dr. Valeriy Ginzburg states in a recent letter that “the bills adopted by the Senate and the House probably represent the most fair way of covering the uninsured while spreading the costs in an equitable fashion.” (“Health care reform imperative,” February 5).
I respectively disagree.
If the bills adopted by the Senate and the House truly spread costs across society fairly, the respective number of pages for these bills would not surpass 10 pages. In other words, it would be simple to total all health care costs and divide them equally amongst the members of society. It is precisely because these bills favor particular classes of people over others that these bills are well over 1000 pages of elusive legal jargon.
