Shame on us

Dear Editor:

I continue to feel a profound sense of sadness and shame that I was born and live in a country where so many of its citizens are so selfish and mean-spirited that they will go to the lengths they have to prevent all our fellow citizens from having quality health care.

All American citizens should have the equivalent of Medicare coverage. The health of our people, whoever they are, comes before anything else, as is the case in my family and yours as well I’m sure. Anything less is an idea whose time must be history.
