LETTER: State Legislature must pass NY Health Act, Sarah Outterson-Murphy, Oneonta Daily Star

It was heartbreaking to read this paper’s story about the woman who had to postpone her marriage to keep health insurance for her daughter’s birth. What kind of a nation are we if our friends and neighbors must make decisions like this to ensure health care?

In no other democratic nation in the world must citizens delay marriages to afford health care. Peer nations provide everyone health care as a matter of right — like firefighters and police and libraries. And people in those countries are healthier and live longer.

New Yorkers can do better.
