Pittsburgh Post Gazette - echo: improving health insurance

Take these steps toward viable health care solutions

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette August 2, 2017
Letter to the editor:

How can we secure a viable plan to address health care needs in the United States?

Step 1 — Eliminate these words from the vocabulary:

Obamacare, Trumpcare and repeal. The first two are polarizing misnomers. The third is a useless strategy with no avenue to effect workable solutions.

Step 2 — Begin a constructive, bipartisan national conversation (Congress and citizens) on the current law (legally known as the Affordable Care Act) to identify what needs to be improved or fixed. Build on elements that people agree have had some success.

Americans want access to affordable health care for all. 

Can we put aside the political posturing and address that concern? Collaboration and compromise are essential to the task.
