Health care system broken

Send a link to a friend 

Dear Editor:

It seems that there are many unanswered questions regarding the proposed health care plan. But let's keep in mind that there is no plan that is being voted on as of yet.

I don't believe our president will sign a bill that in any way will undermine the level of care for anyone. The majority of people elected President Obama and were in favor of a health care plan that covers everyone. So let the process roll forth and let's see what the final bill looks like before we rush to judgment.

One thing is certain: Our health system is broken. Regardless what happens in Washington, there has to be reform -- guidelines for insurance companies, tort reform for frivolous lawsuits and the way we deliver health care in this country and more emphasis on preventive medicine.

Bill Treakle
