Vail Daily letter: Health-care reform’s a good thing

Michelle Schlund

How can health-care reform not be a good thing? My grandma will get better, affordable care and prescriptions. My son will be able to have affordable health care when he is grown and on his own.

People will no longer die from their diseases only because their insurance won’t pay. People who don’t have insurance through their employers will now be able to get insurance, insuring that they will not go into life-long debt trying to pay their medical bills.

The medical costs from people not insured and not paying their medical bills will no longer be getting passed onto the rest of us through higher medical expenses and higher premiums.

I have not heard any facts proving this reform will not help society.
