Universal care is not magical thinking -- Pamela Midbon

Staff WriterMay 22, 2019

I have to take exception with Steve Chapman’s column last Sunday, ” Both parties rely on magical thinking.

Chapman promotes a false equivalency between the Republican’s tax cuts and Democrats’ plans for universal health care.

The concept of “Medicare for All” is neither a far-left idea nor magical thinking. Of the 36 nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (commonly called the developed nations) only two nations do not offer universal health care -- the United States and Mexico.
