Vail Daily letter: Must have public option

President Obama’s description of the problem was correct. However, there must be no individual mandate to buy health insurance without the inclusion of a robust public option in any “exchange.”

Anything else is a giveaway to the insurance companies who have been robbing the American people for decades and using their ever-increasing premiums to pay executives outrageous salaries and bonuses.

In addition, help for the uninsured and underinsured must become available immediately. It is immoral for this country to allow people to die and go bankrupt because of a lack of insurance.
