Your editorial made me glad to be a regular Riverdale Press reader. Health care is our most vexing issue right now, and we desperately need the conversation and leadership The Riverdale Press is demonstrating.
Regardless of party, New Yorkers know our current health care system is killing us — and Republicans are trying to ensure that it could kill more of us.
There is a better way: the New York Health Act. It will save our lives. It will improve Medicare by expanding coverage (including dentures, hearing aids, glasses — none of which Medicare covers), and reduce the average out-of-pocket expenditures of $6,000 per senior citizen, to zero.
