Who really gets health care act?

Success - Article sent! close

A letter from Sue West in your Oct. 30 edition, "Health care just got more expensive," prompts this note.

I rely on your paper for accurate information on many subjects, especially about what government is doing. It seems just about every item I read and see on TV is about someone getting less for more in their health insurance. What happened to the "affordable" part of the act?

I think your paper would do the public a great service by finding more people in Sue's situation and tracking them for a year or so. Put some reporters on this to dig deep into the subject. Let's find out if everything is going to be all right in the end, as the administration says. Will some people be without insurance who had it before? So far all we hear is more expensive and large deductibles. It seems the insurance companies are the ones who will really benefit. Does anyone really know what this act is about?
