LETTER: Don't repeal the health care overhaul

RE: TODAY'S QUESTION: Should the health care law be repealed?

The short answer is no. To explain why, let me tell you that in the 1970s, while working a party in a private home, a highly placed Ohio politician told me I should be out picketing the insurance companies. Yes, he was under the influence, which is probably why he spoke the truth.

No one thinks this country doesn't need an overhaul of its health care system — the highest costs on the planet and the worst medical care.

That doesn't need to be fixed?

"the worst medical care."

Do tell? Have you ever been outside the borders of the United States?

I have and I have used and seen the medical care in many countries and I can tell you that the medical care in the US is not the worst. You should really re evaluate your believes if you are just saying it is the worst because it costs more.

And just so other reading this do not take me the wrong way. I vote yes it should be repelled because this country can not afford it. We soon will not be able to afford the interest on our loans. Voting Yes for the for the majority that agree does not mean they are happy with how the system is but voting yes means it can be fixed and fixed without costing more then it does now.
