Grand County hit hard by health insurance problem

To the Editor:

Thank you for undertaking the health insurance series. I am disturbed every time I see a one gallon jar soliciting funds for a Grand County neighbor who has suffered serious trauma or a grave medical condition.

We are alone among developed nations in failing to provide adequate medical care to all our citizens. As you point out, many Grand County residents are hit particularly hard because of low incomes resulting from seasonal employment.

Thanks for spreading the message.
