The letter in today’s Spokesman Review by John Wodynski was right on! (“Socialism USA,” Nov. 17)
Why does this country label “health care for all” a socialist idea, as if that were a bad thing, when we have so many socialist programs in this country? Doesn’t everyone need access to health care at some point?
I know the health insurance companies and hospitals and doctors would have to adapt, but we can make it work. It works in many other countries. I lived in Mexico for a few years, where a lot of the health care was charity. Our doctor in Mexico told us he was required by the government to see 10% of his patients for nothing.
Our health care system in this country is way more expensive — and not necessarily better — than it is in countries with socialized medicine.
