Your article “Retired deputy warden is no fan of President Obama” leaves me shaking my head in disgust. You quote the person being interviewed as saying “Providing health care for everyone? It’s really an impossible thing as far as I’m concerned.” And “I really don’t see how the taxpayers can afford it”. This is coming from a man who has had his health care provided primarily by the government for 14 years. When I hear this it sounds to me like “I’ve got mine, the heck with everyone else.”

Every other industrialized country in the world provides healthcare for all of its citizens and for, at most 50 percent of what we are paying to cover only a portion of our citizens. If our people in Washington would roll up their sleeves and work together we could do it here too.
