Health care

Thank you for saying what needed to be said to clarify the health care reform issue. It is not the health care that needs to be reformed in this country but the health care insurance industry. I do think you understated the profits that are being bled from those lucky enough to have coverage though. If it is true, my understanding is that the head of United Health Care was compensated $1.7 billion in 2007. That’s 1,700 million dollar lotto jackpots. Maybe he discovered a cure for some threat to mankind that we don’t know about yet. Here’s to our good health. David Mergen Issaquah
