Letter: Thorny issues surround debate over health care

Thorny issues surround debate over health care

With the debate going on over health care, I ponder these questions:

If people need lifesaving surgery or other medical care in order to survive, and they cannot afford it, should they be allowed to obtain the care from a veterinarian? Would a civilized county allow this?

If the government requires doctors, hospitals and other health care providers to have licenses, does that create any obligation on the part of government to provide health care?

Does a free market improve quality, as some politicians claim, or does a free market cause a decline in quality when the product or service is very complex and/or very expensive?

Health care is a real conundrum!
