Letter writer Joshua Steiner appears to be concerned about the health insurance companies and their profits and also concerned that someone who has signed up for the Affordable Care Act may be receiving a government subsidy. The real problem has been the excessive profits of the health insurance companies.
These companies have received subsidies from the government as well as the billions of dollars that the health insurance companies have spent lobbying over the past ten years to influence Congress so they may protect their company's interests. We all paid for those costs.
Most of the people in this country who are sick and who are getting sick, are getting ill not from things that they do to themselves, but from things that have been done to them. Remember transfat? Then there are the other thousands of assaults to their immune systems. Who should pay for those?
