Letter: Letter to Congressman Foster

By on August 27, 2009

I have watched the continuing debate over health care. In my view, the overarching issue is access to health care for the uninsured. I would suggest three simple solutions:

One, find a method and the means to pay for insurance for this group inside our existing structure.

Two, reform the tort laws that add to the overall cost of health care.

Three, change the law to let individuals buy high-deductible coverage with health savings accounts to facilitate and encourage improved individual choice on health matters.

I am sorry, but the current proposals, to the extent they can be comprehended, are a mess.

If you exercise poor judgement on this matter and vote for this proposal, I will vote against you in the next election, I will contribute to your opponent in the next election and I will work actively against you in the next election. Regardless of the opponent, I will continue to do so until you are defeated and removed from office.
