Congratulations to Bob Jacobs on his letter about universal health care and to those concerned about socialized medicine.
Where would we be today without child labor laws, worker's compensation, minimum wage laws, unemployment insurance, Social Security, Medicare, veterans' health benefits, and Tri-Care for military retirees?
Those critical of national health care should review their U.S. government high school textbooks. In the past century, social legislation has benefited mankind in the majority of Western industrialized countries.
We are a rich country and still have 46 million Americans without health care, an increase of 16 million since 1992. This situation is ridiculous.
