Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
I saw that there’s a new study out that says the government-controlled health insurance system that some Democrats running for president are pushing would be devastating for rural health care in Arizona, with some 40% put in danger of closing. Those of us who have lived in “rural” Arizona know that accessing quality care at an affordable price is difficult enough, so I hope that our leaders in Washington aren’t looking to make the situation exponentially worse.
But this is Congress, after all, so maybe they are. Maybe they should simply fix what’s broken with the system we have. That way, at least we can keep our access to rural hospitals should we have an emergency.
