Letter to the editor

Letter: Make Trump keep his pledge


House Bill 676 would expand medicare to all individuals residing in the US and its territories. This is a comprehensive bill that gets for-profit companies out of health care and provides a solid plan for funding.

Expanded medicare would save money and provide better health care by reducing administrative costs, eliminating profit, negotiating drug prices, simplifying payment for providers, and reducing the use of emergency rooms. The time is now! Pass universal health care, not some cobbled together bill that throws the middle class under the bus and bows to the pressure of ultraconservatives who do not represent the views of the majority of Americans.

President Trump promised health care for everyone. Call the President and your representative, ask them to pressure the subcommittee on Indian, Insular & Alaska Native Affairs to vote yes and send this bill to the floor of the house for a vote.

Joyce Richardson,
