Seattle Times letters to the editor

The Affordable Care Act

Time for a bigger change

I am convinced that the national health-care reform law is seriously flawed.

It is not that the law isn’t good in theory; it is just not workable in a currency-driven economy, such as the one we have now.

What we need to do is rethink our economy. A society with a currency-based economy will fail eventually. It’s a question of the “haves” and the “have-nots,” which creates an entitlement society, such as that which we have here in the United States today. Obamacare has been called a new entitlement, as health care should be for all of us.

What we need to do is change our society from a currency-driven society to a labor-driven society, where everyone who works, be it designing and building spaceships or just sweeping our streets and sidewalks, is entitled to all our society can offer.

I believe we must change our society now.
