Today's letter to The New York Times

Has there ever been a more blatant giveaway of taxpayer money than these latest "health reform" or "patient protection" bills? All these new taxes and higher premiums are being created to shore up the insurance companies' bottom lines. Why do we, as a nation, have that obligation? I thought capitalism was a system in which you take your chances--you can make it big or you can fall by the wayside. Yet somehow (hmm, wonder why?) insurance companies have been enshrined in our system as untouchable, much better protected than the people's health and seemingly more deserving of protection. Their stockholders and their executives are being paid millions on the backs of the American people. There has to be a way to stop this. Is there not one patriot in our government who will do it?
