Seattle Times letters to the editor

April 18, 2013 at 5:12 PM

Socialized health care will drive out good doctors

America’s health-care system is not the best

I was startled to see the letter writer state that “America’s health-care system is the best in the world.” Far from it [“Obamacare will scare off quality doctors,” Northwest Voices, April 18].

What was demonstrated in Boston is that the United States has the best trauma-care center in the world.

In truth, our health care is not in the top 10 worldwide. But maybe you confuse it with the other fact: Our health care is the most expensive in the world.

Alan Zelt, Kenmore
