Single-payer plan best

September 25, 2013
by JOHN BENDER , The Leader Herald

In reference to the recent letter to the editor by Bill Hunt, it seems that Bill believes the Affordable Care Act is dangerous because it is not provided for in the Constitution. Bill believes in freedom, but he does not seem to believe people should have the right to protection from being gouged by big insurance companies. Perhaps he hasn't noticed the insurance companies are not intent on protecting people's health, but try at all times to make a profit. By law, a company's first priority is to make a profit for its investors. This is not freedom. By law, insurance companies are in direct conflict with consumers' interests. We can be fooled into believing this is freedom when it is collusion between government and business against the public.
