Letter To The Editor: A Better Health Care Payment System

It's strange that a five second sound bite, “I will kill Obamacare” can drive national policies. Finally President Trump admits, “health care is complicated”. So GOP members contort themselves to make magic happen, so far unsuccessfully. They dispute the CBO's numbers because they're not happily magical.

Why doesn't the public have whatever health plan Congress has? If it's good enough for Congress we in the public could live with it.

This is just a short public “thank you” to the Los Alamos Medical Center.
 
I am a single dad with an 8-year-old son. A short time ago I had to go the ER with severe stomach pains and was admitted overnight into the ICU for observation. My parents were out of the country. Friends picked my son up from school and took care of him that afternoon, but he had no familiar place to stay overnight.
 
The staff at LAMC set up a bed in my room in the ICU, arranged for his supper, and he was able to spend the night with me in my room.

The theme for the event was “Havana Nights” and for some reason I thought, “Carmen Miranda!” Although as it turns out, Carmen was

A concerned mother grateful for her children’s teachers

Dear Governor and dear Representatives who voted against the resolution that would’ve allowed teachers to take more than 3 sick days without penalty, let me ask you: how many times did you take a sick day this past year? How many times did you have to assist a sick family member, whether a child, a spouse, or an elderly parent? And all this when you hold a position that doesn’t keep you inside a classroom five days a week. Along with train stations and public places, schools are the primary route for the spread of
