Letter: Average American with health care doesn't care about others
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated.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.

In a Tribune Public Forum letter Mike Spain wrote, "My wife and I have provided for our family's medical and other needs just fine." He indicated that he does not need "a benevolent dictator" to tell him what they need.

That's exactly what the average American's attitude is: I have mine, and I don't care about the rest. Who cares that millions of American working families cannot afford health care? We have ours and that is enough.

Well, I for one, even though I do not need the Affordable Care Act, am very glad that many now have a chance for a better life due to health care that is affordable.

The ACA is far from perfect, but it is a beginning and will improve over time.
