Take the health plan offered from Washington


OTTUMWA — We have good health care in our state for some people.

The problem is with the people who don’t have insurance or a lot of money. The poor don’t go to the doctor until they are very sick. The hospital runs up a large bill, which we pay. They seldom have money to pay these big bills. Does this sound like a good health system to you?

This is the most expensive way for Iowans to get health care. We have a plan from Washington, D.C. I say take it right now for the good of all of us.
