Second, the voucher system creates a future scenario where particular legislators and health insurance lobbies can collude. Legislators will keep raising the amount of your voucher (seemingly looking good), but rest assured, any raise in voucher amount will always be followed by the inevitable raise in health insurance premiums. This upward spiral keeps on going unchecked, unabated, lining the pockets of puppet legislators and increasing the guaranteed, exorbitant profits of private health insurance companies, who are really only middlemen doing the paperwork.
Who pays for all of this? You guessed it. It is we, the taxpayers.
No, let’s stick with Obama. He wants to control administrative costs of health insurers while lowering health provider costs through efficiency and more economical ways to provide the best most affordable health care. Also, there is no right of refusal. Everyone is ultimately insured at the best price possible.
Fellow senior citizens, because we are “safe in the room” with the present Medicare system, let us not “slam the door behind us” on our children and grandchildren who deserve to be in this room with us.
Finegold is best choice
for state Senate
To the editor:
As a resident, voter and taxpayer in the city of Lawrence, I strongly support state Sen. Barry Finegold.
Sen. Finegold is an independent thinker who has shown his commitment to creating and sustaining change in the City of Lawrence during his tenure in the Massachusetts Senate and involvement in numerous civic activities.
I have met Barry Finegold and can vouch that his constituents will be able to count on his common sense and responsiveness.
I urge voters in the City of Lawrence to support Barry Finegold’s candidacy for the Massachusetts Senate.
