On U.S. Health Care

BY KATHLEEN BEENHAM

The article, “ Health Care Costs on the Rise ” ( JofA , May03, page 59), made me realize just how far the United States is from providing its citizens the basic human right of affordable health care.

This article, like many similar ones I have been reading lately, discussed the expensive alternatives available to obtain health care. I fail to see how people can write such stories without indicating their dissatisfaction with the whole system. If people are lucky enough to work for the right employer, they don’t have to worry, but that seems to be only a select few.

I believe one way CPAs could regain public trust would be to advise their clients to write to their representatives in government and demand affordable access to proper health care for all Americans.
