Letter: Get smart on health care

Columbian - 04-04

Republicans are demonizing Medicare for all. No surprise. They protect insurance companies instead of the people they represent. Again, no surprise. Our health care system is full of pitfalls that are bankrupting citizens all over the country. In network, out of network, surprise bills; prescription drug pricing is through the roof; imaging prices are extremely high. Medicare for all would end all of this. Republicans and some Democrats take large campaign donations from pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies. Ask yourself, why the big donations? The answer is simple: Medicare for all.
