How the rest of the modern world does health care

The Denver Post - - NATION & WORLD - Re: David Wolf,

“Do­ing the math on health care leg­is­la­tion and the costs of care,” July 14 let­ters to the edi­tor.

Let­ter-writer Smith Young as­tutely ob­serves that if we elim­i­nate 22 mil­lion peo­ple from health cov­er­age, the deficit will go down. The deficit would also be re­duced if we didn’t build war­ships and pub­lic high­ways, or ed­u­cate our chil­dren.

If you want to live in a so­ci­ety in which even poor peo­ple have health care, then you must con­trib­ute to the cost if you are not poor. That is how the rest of the modern world does it. Send let­ters of 150 words or fewer to open­fo­rum@ den­ver­post.com or 101 W. Col­fax Ave., Suite 800, Den­ver, CO, 80202. Please in­clude full name, city and phone num­ber. Con­tact in­for­ma­tion is for our pur­poses only; we will not share it with any­one else. You can reach us by phone at 303-954-1331.
