Some can't afford it
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The recent Public Forum letter from Frederick Anderson ("Replace Obamacare," August 2) shows a typical attitude of "I've got mine and to h... with everyone else."

Mr. Anderson wants to replace the so-called "Obamacare" with care by the "private sector!" It is obvious that Mr. Anderson never has lost his job and was forced to buy COBRA coverage due to a family member's health problem.

Mr. Anderson never knew a couple where both work, sometimes more than one job, and still barely survive, let alone buy expensive private sector insurance. Even if they were allowed because they had no "pre-existing" condition.

I am glad that Mr. Anderson is able to afford health care but I am also glad that, thanks to "Obamacare," others can have a chance for health care.
