In his letter of April 21, Representative Faso attempts to defend his proposal to allow insurance for the elderly to cost much more than is currently allowed, and his proposal to cut Medicaid funding statewide. However, with so many seniors and working people already having trouble affording coverage, Representative Faso is afraid to directly state that he supports charging people unaffordable amounts for their health care. Instead, he attempts to distract readers from this central issue by complaining that young people ought to buy more insurance, by insisting that “age banding” would merely be a state decision, and by ignoring the glaring question of how New York would maintain Medicaid coverage under his proposal.
LETTER: Universal Healthcare is the Best Bet for Us, Sarah Outterson-Murphy, Oneonta Daily Star
