Why force Americans to buy coverage they just don’t want?
Regarding the July 17 editorial (“This is a disaster,” p. 24), Americans do not want to be forced to pay for medical coverage they don’t want/need. Many people are very willing to live their lives and have only catastrophic health insurance in case of . . . a catastrophe. If the government could be trusted to use our tax dollars wisely, then maybe they could use tax dollars to help those who want care but don’t have the funds. Oh wait, could they utilize a government-run healthcare system like the VA?
