Marin IJ Readers’ Forum for Nov. 27

Marin IJ Readers’ Forum for Nov. 27
Love this LTE in this CA paper:

"We need it as soon as possible, starting in California and leading to a national health program based on the Medicare model — improved and expanded Medicare for all, cradle to grave, sperm to worm.

Everybody in, nobody out.

A huge risk pool that can cover everyone with great benefits, including dental and vision, paid for with a modest tax on individual income and business payroll (like Medicare), replacing all the unpredictable, escalating expenses we pay now.
Obamacare sent us some long overdue basic reforms, but forgot to get rid of the private insurers in the middle, which provide nothing we need and are there only to take a 30 percent cut and limit our care.'

— Ellen Karel, Corte Madera
