Regarding Tiffany Morkowsky's Sept. 13 letter, "Healthcare is a privilege, not a right," she says her husband pays into his insurance, therefore she is entitled to health care. Does she pay into her own policy? If not, then why should she be one of the "privileged" people who deserve health care?
What if her husband lost his job and could no longer afford insurance? Would that not put her in the category of "not deserving" health care?
I am 53. I was born in the United States, and I have paid taxes since I was 15. Due to an accident I was in a few years ago, I cannot afford health insurance.
Would she not say I have a "right" to health care?
Her over-generalized statement shows, in my opinion, a lack of concern for people who are truly hard-working and suffering needlessly, and a complete lack of understanding as to how our health care system, such as it is, came to be so corrupt.
Further research on everyone's part in the health care debate would be better for all--especially for those who are currently insured but have no guarantee that they will be in the years ahead.
