I sent this letter to the LATimes in May 2009 (not published):
House Republican leader John Boehner recently said, “We’ve got the greatest health care delivery system in the world. Why do we want to jeopardize that with a big government-run health care system?”
I have two replies:
1. Just give us a choice. If no one wants the public option, we'll soon find out.
2. If government-run health insurance is so terrible, take it away from members of Congress and their staff. Force them to deal with all the private insurers, just like the rest of us.
